Sixth graders encouraged to "have fun"
in their careers



CareerFor Amy Kaherl, the journey from a restaurant barista to the pages of theNew York Times and a BBC documentary has been one of “adventure.”

Kaherl, who was speaking at the annual Utica Community Schools Career Focus Luncheon, told district sixth graders about the many jobs she had before she earned the international attention for starting an organization that provides seed money for community-based projects in Detroit.

“What I love most about my jobs is that I’ve always had fun,” she said. “It is ok if you are still unclear about your career. It’s all just about the journey. You need to do it for yourself.”
