What are your day to day duties in the shop?

My jobs are serving customers, helping to unpack deliveries, stocking the shelves, cleaning, keeping the shop tidy, dusting the shelves and vacuuming the shop.

Why do you think Fairtrade is important?

I think it is important to help poor and vulnerable people. Fairtrade doesn’t scam these people when they are working hard and I think that is a good thing.

What is your favourite product in the shop?

Tony’s chocolate! All the flavours!

Have you always lived in Sheffield?

I moved to Sheffield from Poland when I was five so my parents could get a better paid job. I have been to primary and secondary school here and to college.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to play and watch sport – especially football. I play every Monday night with my friends – I am the goalkeeper for my team.
