Thank you to the Co-Op for hiring me.
A cashier is where I began my Haida Gwaii journey.
I came here with a plan.
I’d work in the service industry.
9-5 for minimum wage.
I got to meet the town.
Flip around the odd frown.
Pride in making my own money.
It’s where I met the man that would become my honey!
The job gave me structure.
I grew thicker skin from working with someone who was mean.
But I thank her as she helped me move on.
I folded my uniform up.
Went across the street and put the coffee on!
It’s now been 1 year.
And my journey must continue.
Into the unknown.
But I know I will miss you!!!
