I would have thought that some of the customers would be upset, but just like the employees and café itself they were warm and understanding. They all seemed happy to be there and completely satisfied with their service. Everyone seemed well acquainted with each other, and that same positive energy was spread equally through-out the place. It was the best work environment that I have ever experienced—both as an employee and customer.

Alcorn 4 Finally, working at Portia’s Café has showed me that there can be an abundance of positivity in the work place beyond just receiving a check. If I wasn’t open to asking questions about it, I probably wouldn’t have known that this place existed, and I’d be stuck doing something that I dreaded. Portia and every employee there has contributed in creating a supportive, encouraging, and compassionate space for everyone. Their passion for healthy food, progressive ways to help sustain the environment, and save our animals are inspirational. Collectively, their genuine efforts and knowledge about the food industry has convinced me to start living a vegan lifestyle. Although it can be difficult, it is worth it. They are always eager to provide advice or assistance to make the journey easier. The relationships that I’ve established with everyone there will always be remembered. Working at Kroger is incomparable to the time I have working at Portia’s. I would have never thought that a job I got as a high school student would have such a great influence on my life, eating habits, and perspective. Having an open mind about things despite the circumstances is important. For now, I’ll be sure to make it an intrinsic part of my thinking.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
