Storyboard Text

  • Beginning of A Revelation
  • A New Environment
  • Sudden Adjustments
  • Over the long summer break, I was told by my father to work in the family business to learn the ropes of the industry and to use my long break wisely. On my mind I thought I would be in the main office working directly under him, however he had different plans for me.
  • Discoveries
  • My father's plan for me was to work a blue collar job for me to learn what it was like in the real world. He said he put me in this position for me to learn that it is not easy to earn a living after school.
  • Realizations
  • At first I did not understand why my father wanted me to be part of this workforce, as I knew I could do more technical operations rather than being a "kargador" or blue collar worker. 
  • Appreciation
  • Although after several days working in the warehouses and backrooms of the stores, I grew to realize how fruitful the experience was, as I met a lot of new people as my fellow workmates each having a different story to tell. 
  • I grew to enjoy my work, as I learned that only hard work will earn your sustenance, and that there are people out there that have bigger problems than I, which made me learn to be appreciative of what I have. 
  • With the experience, I learned how to value money, and that it is not easy to earn it and calls for a lot of hard work, which made me realize that I have to use my money wisely and study hard. It also taught me to be grateful in my situation now, as the obstacles I face today are far smaller than what others face in the outside world, which I am forever grateful having this opportunity to learn this through my dad.
