Desani's Story

Posted by The Arc of North Carolina

October is recognized as National Disability Employment Awareness Month, but we think it is important to recognize the importance of employment for people with disabilities EVERY month! So, we are kicking off the month with a story about Desani.

He started working at Domino’s Pizza in the summer of 2021 and is a valued team member. He is also a student at Cape Fear Community College.

Desani has several responsibilities at his job. His favorite task is the labeling station where he is in charge. He ensures that all orders are properly labeled and boxes are stocked for future use. Desani also answers the phones and works at the drive-through window.

When Desani is working at the oven station, he conducts quality checks for each individual item, boxes up orders, and notifies drivers of any orders that are ready. He loves having a job and earning a paycheck!
