"I am good at my work!" - Mohammad at Pizza Corner
"My name is Mohammad and I am 24 years old. I work at Pizza Corner everyday from 9 am - 1 pm. I am responsible for making sure the place is ready for customers; I prepare tables by putting tablecloths on them. When I finish that I go into the kitchen to see if the guys there need help. Next month I will move to the branch in Abu Nsair, because it is closer to my home."
"Going to work is much better than sitting at home. This way I work and have fun and i get a salary at the end of the month. Maybe I will buy a new pair of shoes with my salary ... and then save the rest."
"Before I started working, i finished a course in ICDL and took a certificate. I love the computer a lot and we have a laptop at home. I can work on Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. I am good: good at computers and good at work."
"My dad and I are good friends. We go out and hangout together. On Fridays, we go with my brothers to the mosque. When I hear the Quran, I feel calm. I put a recording of the Quran on my mobile. I have many fun applications on my mobile, but I use whatsapp the most to talk to my friends as well as Tango and Snapchat. I don't like instagrm much."
One of Mohammed's colleagues says:
"When they first told us that a person with special needs joined our team, I did not know what to expect because I had never before dealt with someone like that before. Today, this barrier of fear between me and Mohammed is broken ... Muhammad does a great job at work and we get along. Not only that; Mohammad is really good at computers and speaks good English - while I dont know a single word in English! But Mohammad, mashallah, he's really good; if I ever get an English speaking customer, I call him to translate for me."
