I really enjoy working for the Neighborhood Project Initiative. Thus far, it has been an extremely rewarding experience for myself, and the people who I have been helping.  I am currently working for a small Mexican restaurant in San Jose.

After I was introduced to all of the workers at CET, I was immediately inspired to work my hardest to complete our shared end goal. My excitement was increased a few weeks after when I was introduced to La Mejor Taqueria. The second I walked in, I felt as if I was a part of the La Mejor family. After a few short, mumbled introductions, my team, Yacanex and I scanned the restaurant. After a 30-minute walk-around my team and I knew exactly what needed to be done in order to aid the restaurant.

This Friday, my team and I will be presenting our business plan to the rest of the NPI team. We are focusing on marketing and beautification of the taqueria.
