Ivana Alawi shared her experience of working as a waitress before making her way to the entertainment industry.
The 24-year-old celebrity made the revelation when she and younger sister Mona answered their brother Hash’s “What was my first job” question in his Who Knows Me Better vlog on YouTube.
“Pareho kaming waiter…waitress ako,” said Ivana, sharing that she used to clean and wait tables at a restaurant in Bahrain owned by their late Moroccan father Samier Al-Alawi.
Ivana added that their father hired them for the job so they could earn money.
“Ako taga punas ‘dun. Kasi dati sa Bahrain meron kaming restaurant tapos ako yung taga-punas. Si dad kasi yung may-ari nung restaurant so ginagawa niya kaming mga waiter, waitress para kumita kami ng pera parang ganun.”
She continued, “Tapos nahihiya akong kunin yung mga order nung mga tao kasi parang sosyal.”
Hash, on the other hand, recalled, “Natutuwa pa tayo. Nag-uunahan tayo mag-punas ng mga table.”
