Please meet Joan! Joan came to Manila from the province to have at least enough money to eat every day. She is part of our team for two years now. And with her and our team of mothers we create the beautiful bags of Notadaydream. Whitout them we wouldn’t be able to create these unique handmade pieces!
We spoke with her recently regarding her working for Notadaydream.
What’s your favorite part of your job at Notadaydream?
Joan: “I really like to put the zippers on the bag”
What’s the most important part of you working for Notadaydream?
Joan: “I’m proud to be part of this team. We’re working together and make sure the bags are made well and done in time. I want to do good and do it together [“samasama”]. I really like that I gain knowledge by working and to know more about the bag making process.
What’s your favorite bag and color?
Joan: “I like the handbag and my favorite color is red.”
What dream do you have?
Joan: “My dream is to have my own sewing machine one day. I want to continue working. And I want to give a better life to my son and being able to let him finish his study.”
Joan: “I'm a hardworking mom, friendly & happy. But I can be moody too, it depends on how you treat me.”
