Hello, I'm Aiste from Lithuania and I will talk about my first job for elllo.org.
My first job was actually selling traditional Lithuania cake, that is called Shakotis in Japan when I just came and I began studying as a student here, the problem was that I wasn't really confident in Japanese language, and Japanese people are not really good in speaking English, and I had to somehow sell and describe the traditional Lithuanian cake and why that is so good. Traditional Lithuanian cake is a little bit similar to German version of baumkuchen or somehow they call it, and I was trying to give some similarities to that but the people came to me and they wanted to talk with me and ask me something more, and I was really frustrated because I couldn't understand them properly and even more I couldn't answer them in the way they wanted, so I felt a little bit just like a doll standing there with traditional clothes and shouting some sentences that I learned by heart. That was kind of tough, and I remember the experience of standing ten hours in the airport with a bunch of Lithuanian cakes and just shouting some sentences and trying to sell them. Well, didn't do that job very long but I will remember it for really long.
