This week, Sophie-Ana Cives wrote in with her Hero nomination:
I would like to nominate my coworker, Ricci Bautista. We work together at the Canadian Brewhouse in Okotoks, Alberta.
He is an amazing colleague, who works as our full time cook. He always gives 100% and makes this place a happy environment for everyone who works here. Personally, for me, he sets a great example by showing a strong work ethic and makes everyone feel worthy and encourages the staff.
He works hard towards achieving his dream of bringing the rest of his family from the Philippines to Canada. I know that every day is one step closer to reuniting with his family.
He is truly my hero.
Well, Sophie, it sounds like Ricci is a great friend to all of you, and a bit of a guardian with the way he looks out for his staff.
It shows that a hero isn’t necessarily somebody who’s some kind of Superman. It can be someone who lives by example and the ripple effect it has on those around him. He sounds like a stand-up guy, and Ricci, we honor you as this week’s Kidde Hero.
