My first job is actually two jobs – I started them both about the same time. At 16 there were few things I loved more than snowboarding – to be honest the same could be said for now – but snowboarding, that was my passion, so my first few jobs complimented this love perfectly.
I worked for 6 hours a week, on a Sunday, at Sheffield Ski Village in what was the boot room, handing out ski and snowboard books and measuring people for skis and boards for their lessons or slope trips. We weren’t paid in money, but if you worked, you got to ride for free all week…..plus I got to hang out with some amazing people, make some great friends and develop some swoon worthy crushes! About a year go, the ski village burnt down. Such a sad time
Not bad for my first jobs, hu?
