My Prison Job (Life)

In high school and college, I was optimistic and ambitious. Even though I wasn't a great student, my personality and success in other areas always got me- eventually to my goal - UC Berkeley (Cal). Then in my senior year of college- my life changed as dramatically & as loud as the clicks of handcuffs tightening around my wrists. While I fight to prove my innocence, the other thing that keeps me busy- my prison job.

Even though I'm in here, I still strive to be/do the best. Work keeps me busy & learning & allows me to use my education to better the job, environment, and product- both for myself and other inmates that work there.

Check it out & SEND ME SOME MAIL!

1- Job Evals 2&3- ISO group prep I prepared
4&5 Forklift practice I prepared
6&7- Serv Safe: Since coffee is a food item passing Serv Safe is mandatory in California (for anybody handling food)
8&9- safety improvement of work (I made)
10- job agreement form given/signed by all workers
The forms I made have been adopted by Cal prison industries: coffee roasting

The daily grind of coffee brews keeps me focused!

With respect,
Michael Singh
