I vividly remember June 21, 2013— my first day as an employee at Subway. I began working there just days before I graduated from the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan, with a college acceptance letter in hand. Juggling this job with school wasn’t easy at first. Months went by where I worked five to seven days a week. But over time, the experience taught me something about myself: I took pride in serving as the shift manager, in taking on the responsibility of opening and closing the store. Eager to explore these newfound professional interests, I began to search online for a school that would boost my knowledge of management and service. Nothing caught my eye…until I came across ICE.
