I started my working career at a shoe store at the age of 16, and I stayed there for 4 years in total. I never intended to stay there for 4 years but after 2 years, I was awarded a scholarship for college, and I had to maintain working hours on the weekends. Thus, two weekends out of the month, summers, and holiday breaks, I worked at the shoe store. I was motivated to continue the work because I definitely needed the scholarship to assist me in paying for my books. The motivation for me to stay was funding for school.
