Hello Cassa Bassa here, sitting by the campfire and sharing a bit. Today the coffee is dark and bitter, just the way I like it.

My work in the community service industry has granted me the privilege to get to know a diverse group of clients somewhat in an intimate way. I often admire their resilience and fighting spirit because they are up against challenges and barriers in life that most of us do not face.

Here I share Adriana’s story in an unusual form. I hope you see her strengths disregarding her unorthodox occupation.

      It was modified for blogging purpose. The original resume has more detail in each employment period, includes qualification and training, workplace skills and technical skills sections.

            Oh, the resume was not for another sex worker job application, it was for a food demonstrator job in a supermarket, and the application was successful. Name and places were changed for privacy.

            Way cool. So there was a transition of skills from one vocation to the next.

            Although sex work itself is legal, we do not provide support or help for someone staying in that industry, nor we encourage at all. I thought I clarify.

            I see. You have your work cut out for you in your line of work!

    It’s amazing how, when you turn perspective on its head, folks who apparently have the least to offer are often the most skilled 🖤🖤🖤

    1. Cassa Bassa says:

      Yes sex workers that I encountered are in general more intuitive, adaptable and resilient.

  2. Jeff Flesch says:

    Lots of strengths there. I also agree with the comment thread where you mention strengths in intuition, adaptability, and resiliency. Great guest post, Cassa.

    It’s a tough life. Many are looking for a way out. Wonderful that you are helping, Cassa. I like the way you’ve worded it. Creative. 🙂

    How wonderful that you are helping those who have devalued themselves to sad state of mind of self worth. Giving them opportunity to have life they can be can heal in and one day start a family with integrity. I pray she that this new job gives her a new lease on life.

      She has since regained access to her son, she got visiting rights now. That’s a great win for her. Thanks for your prayer support. I pray the same for her freedom from bondage. 🙏
