"I've learned how to be happy with what I have. I’ve learned that you don’t need to pursue a 'career job' or a [formal] 9-5 to be happy. Because you can have that dream job or make a 6 figure salary but still be miserable.
"It’s very interesting because I have a college degree and people are surprised that I work here! I realized that not everyone is meant to have a 'career job' and that sometimes you just need to go where your passions [lie].
"I've realized that I’m happy here with the students. I pretty much know all of the [students] that stop by -- either by their [favorite] Starbucks drink or by their name! You guys keep me young and motivated to come here."
If you get a chance to stop by Georgetown University Starbucks, be sure to wish Elonda a Happy (belated) Birthday!
