She then gave me my job description and a booklet with the principles and guidelines of the department and showed me to my office. I stood by the door and took a good look at my office. It was not very big, but the furnishings looked very expensive. I entered the room and placed my black leather handbag inside the drawer of the mahogany desk. After turning on the computer, I started familiarizing myself with Microsoft Word knowing that the program will be important in carrying out my duties. I typed two practice letters perfectly and I began to feel confident that I would be productive. After that, I went to different sections of the department and was given a brief description of the specific functions. I interrupted the tour to have had lunch and continued thereafter. It was nearing the end of the workday so I went back to my office to clear my desk. I then made sure that the computer was turned off and properly covered. As I was about to leave my office, Mr. Penn came in and asked me "how was it?" I told him that at first I was a little fearful but now more confident and relaxed. He then wished me a good afternoon and said "I'll see you tomorrow." I told him "ok." After wishing the rest of the staff a good afternoon, I left the office. When I got outside my mother was there as yet so I sat down in a chair on the porch. While sitting, and upon reflecting on the past I started to feel more responsible than when I was going to school. I felt very proud to know that I would be earning my own money and would be able to support myself financially. In addition, I felt a sense of gratitude to my parents for working hard day and night to make sure that I went through secondary school. Finally, my mother came and her first words to me were "how was it?" I told her that it was very good and my confidence has grown tremendously.
