“I recently ran the New York City Marathon for the first time. I live close by the Y and when I was running by one day as part of my marathon training, I saw a sign that said the Y was hiring. I was looking for extra income because I’m getting married soon, I like to exercise and working at the Y gives you a free membership, and this is close to my home. I thought it would be a good opportunity. I also like meeting new people and keeping busy. I’ve met a lot of people since starting here – everyone is really friendly – and there’s always something going on at the Y, which I like. Plus, this is my community, too. I like knowing what’s going on.”
