Video of the Day (below), from Prager University. Can working at McDonald’s better prepare a young adult for life than attending college? For Haverford undergraduate student Olivia Legaspi, college taught her that her feelings are more important than anything (“Place your own well being above all other concerns“); but working at McDonald’s she learned that serving others comes first (“The most important thing at McDonald’s was not how I felt but how my customers felt. It was my job and the job of everyone working there to make others – namely, the customers – happy“). Which of those lessons is more important? Olivia Legaspi explains in the video below.
