Carlos had been working at Subway for a year when we met; it was his second job. His first job was tutoring any and all subjects to children ages five through seventeen.

Carlos graduated from Antelope Valley College with a degree in SELRES_c5cac77f-1d59-4c4d-8853-b24caa06dc47SELRES_8cfe1228-452b-48ad-a8c5-3e50a513bf0dSELRES_a85ac0eb-80b1-4fb7-88de-9c86a4522b88SELRES_6065a923-d4c7-43ca-93f3-4450a88dd206criminal justiceSELRES_6065a923-d4c7-43ca-93f3-4450a88dd206SELRES_a85ac0eb-80b1-4fb7-88de-9c86a4522b88SELRES_8cfe1228-452b-48ad-a8c5-3e50a513bf0dSELRES_c5cac77f-1d59-4c4d-8853-b24caa06dc47. He wasn’t able to go into this field because his mother fell ill and he had to become a full-time care provider for her. He had aspired to be a police officer, but that goal fizzled out after a while.

Carlos liked working at Subway and now and then ate the food there.
