Posted October 28, 2019 11:05:48I don’t want to be seen as the ‘woman’ anymore, but I know I’ve had a hard time.
It’s difficult to talk about, I’m constantly embarrassed and ashamed of my body, and I feel like the stigma is holding me back from living a normal life.
I’m tired of living as a ‘woman’, but I still love my job and want to continue to work in the hospitality industry.
Lillies has worked in the catering industry for eight years, and says she feels very strongly about being a feminist.
She’s tired of people telling her that she needs to change her body to fit in, or to be accepted by men.
“I’m not just a woman who wants to work at a restaurant,” she said.
The Lillys’ story is shared by women across the industry who have struggled with the gender stereotypes surrounding the hospitality sector.
But despite her experience, Lillie is determined to make change.
While she is working in a women-only space, Liliana is keen to promote a positive view of female workers in the industry.
“I’ve got this feeling that there’s a lot of sexism in the world, and it’s something that I want to change,” she told News24.
Although she feels like there are still barriers to change, Lilli said she believes it’s possible.
It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, Asian or from a different ethnicity.
Even if you’ve been in the same position before, you still have to work hard to be a good waitress.
What you do has to be good enough, so if you don’t like that, you can always go and find someone else.
If you want to do something good, you have to do it because you love it.
We can do it, and we can change the world.
