Student Workers: Danyail Hayko


Danyail Hayko is a normal, 16 year old working girl, with a not-so-normal job for a teenager. She works as a floral assistant at the Lemon Tree next to Sparkle Market in Lisbon. Danyail really enjoys her job because she gets to make all different kinds of flower arrangements for customers. She said the best part of working there is helping people display their sympathy or love through an arrangement. She only works 2-3 days a week, but she makes the best of it.

Danyail said one of the downsides of being a floral assistant is when people come in to order funeral arrangements because she has to get all of the background information that is needed. This really upsets her and she does not like that part of her job. Danyail has also had another job before the Lemon Tree as a lemonade girl for Swanee Concessions at Rogers Sale. She has been working since she was just 14 years old, and she said the reason she works is to make money for her everyday needs.
