Celebrating a Great Business Model for Immigrants on International Women’s Day
It gives me a feeling of dignity to finally have other people to see us as we see ourselves: professionals providing a valuable service. As a member of my cooperative business and Up & Go, I am not only a professional house cleaner, but also an accountant, a marketing strategist, and a business owner. I want to study to obtain my G.E.D. and perhaps one day help other communities start up their own cooperatives.
This International Women’s Day I’ll be meeting with my colleagues and reflecting on all that we have accomplished together, and all we have to look forward to. We all have a lot to celebrate.
