Ayon Wen-Waldron Grew Up In Service

Elena Souris

Ayon's childhood was filled with butchering chickens, delivering food, and whatever else her parent's businesses needed. Immigrants to Brazil from Taiwan, the family tried everything from food service to shops to by-the -hour hotels.

Before you get all judgmental, hear Ayon describe the cultural importance of this thriving industry throughout Brazil, and - she argues - much of the third-world.

This story was recorded on March 1st show, with the theme "In Service."

Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live, storytelling event series that looks to bring the Sound of San Antonio out through the stories of your friends and neighbors.
