She Collects GARBAGE for a living - and loves it! Meet Melissa
There is a particular job that very few of us aspire to do, and worst for our children. That's one of the Garbage Collector, certainly here in Jamaica. But there is a lady,who does it with pride, joy and enthusiasm. Here name is Melissa, from right here in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I met Melissa a few years ago when I moved into this neighborhood, and I tell you what, her drive, enthusiasm and dedication to what she does totally captivated me. I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing her yesterday and was blown over. Not only is she extremely confident and positive, she is extremely inspiring! I started by asking her the question... "It's a man's job, what are you doing in a man's job?", and she took over the interview :-) In the interview, the mentioned... Her love for the job How she got started in it Her first manager, Minnie The fact that this job takes care of her family Her loving husband How persons looked (and still look) down on her The challenges aspects of the job, and in addition to a quote from the bible, she had a very strong message to other ladies out there.
And of course, she also answered my favorite question, "What makes Jamaica special?".
