What does your typical workday at NATIFS involve?
Qué implica tu jornada laboral típica en NATIFS?
My day to day at work changes throughout the year since I am also a full time college student. So I’m the summer I am able to work more. I’ve worked and continue to work on different things such as recipe development, being a part of the nixtamal team, helping others around with meals or prep work, and very recently I started teaching a class on Fridays to teach people how to work with our masa to make their own homemade fresh tortillas.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Cuando eras niño, ¿qué querías ser de mayor?
