Our next #HumansoftheY story comes from Tarana, who works in Child Watch at the Indian Valley Family YMCA. Tarana moved to the United States from Azerbaijan and started working here in 2011, and we are so appreciative of all she does!

"My name is Tarana. I started to work here in 2011, beginning in April, now it’s coming on 8 years I’m working. Other than church, the YMCA is my second home. It was my first American job. I love the YMCA; here it’s very good, and I’m not from here, I’m a foreigner, but I feel that here everybody is very friendly and very good. And I love it, I don’t want to work a different job, I always want to work here. Everybody here is kind and wants to give you kindness. I love the YMCA, thank you YMCA!"
