Humans of Downey - Diego


"I come from a lower income Mexican family and I can remember times when we struggled to make ends meet. One Thanksgiving was tough for us because we didn't know if we were going to have dinner. The most important part of that day that I remember though is that the family was together and we were happy together. I was old enough to learn that the most important thing was to be around people you care about and who support you.

"Thinking about that part of my past and comparing it with today, I realize that my job here at The Mambo Grill is like that. I used to be a manager at a structural steel company. Then I took a part time job here on the weekends to supplement my income. But I found that I had made some good friends here. People that I could relate to, people who are going to be there to support me. That's why I left the other job to go full time here. Family is very important to me."
