Hello, I am Fidel Juárez, I am 55 years old and I was born in Zacatelco Tlaxcala Mexico. I have been married for 32 years and have two daughters Lili and Nancy, I also have a 3 year old granddaughter named Kristen.
When I was 29 years old I came to this country and since then I have lived and worked here. My favorite thing about New York is looking at the skyscrapers and the architecture of the city. My passion is working for the well-being of my family and what I do for fun is playing and watching baseball.
Before entering this project I was working at the garde manger station in two restaurants, Minetta Tavern and Frenchette. I have worked in restaurants since moving here to the City.
The lives of people in the future will change from this situation of the Coronavirus. We will all have to take care of ourselves much more than before. In addition to that, we will organize our priorities for what is really important.
My future plans are to open a restaurant with my wife here in New York City.
