It was my 16th birthday, and my mother lost her job, which required me to look for a job to help support my family and my studying overseas dream.
|And I got a part-time job with Universal Company as a salesperson; however, I soon found that job full of stress ful. On busy days, I would have to struggle with choosy customers; and, on slow days, I would have to stand around all day in the shop. My boss constantly threatened me with a salary cut. On top of this, I still had to study assiduously to keep up my grades. Sometimes, I thought I couldn't put up with the job anymore, but I didn't give up. Gradually, I got accustomed to my job. I got satisfaction from pleasing customers. I learned how to handle stress and balance my workload. Eventually, things got better for my family. My mom found a new job and does it well. My life is normal again, but things are not exactly the same as they were previously. I seemed to become a totally different person: more mature and more active. At last, I realize that there's one thing that I maybe stand out: my "never give up" spirit.
