Annette Feliciano works at the Shake Shack in Battery Park City, and she is a dedicated worker. Just after Hurricane Sandy hit, the Shake Shack still had power--and somehow, she got there to start her shift. Of course, she acted like it was no big deal.

"It's rough, but we made it." said Feliciano. "We get there to work." 

Feliciano got her job through Jobpath, and organization that helps people with developmental disabilities find work. Ryan Finger was her case manager.
