I currently help to make software that teaches elementary school students how to read. My role is a programmer and coach to other programmers.
When I was a YES teen, I was a receptionist at Lite 97 FM. Working at the front desk at a radio station was a great introduction to the world of work. I got to learn about all the different jobs that make up a radio station -- I even got to write some ads, and choose some songs that got played on the air! My favorite task, though, was answering the phone when the DJs ran contests... To this day, I often answer the phone, "Calling about the contest? You're caller number one, thanks for calling!"
