Netflix’s ‘Working: What We Do All Day’ features Barack Obama as the host of the documentary series as the former President of the United States of America meets people working in numerous types of jobs. Inspired by the concept of the eponymous 1974 non-fiction book by Studs Terkel, the show introduces viewers to various individuals who share their personal and professional stories with the world. Carmen was among those who took part in the project and became beloved by many. For those wondering about her current whereabouts, worry not because we have your back!
Who is Carmen?
While on the show, Carmen shared that she used to live in public/project housing. However, one day, she returned home from school and learned that there had been a shooting where she lived. This incident shook Carmen as she realized she wanted to change her life’s direction and did not want to continue living similarly. This is perhaps one of the main reasons why, as of writing, she ensures that she lives in a safe and friendly neighborhood.
Through determination and hard work, Carmen completed high school and earned a dentistry degree. Unfortunately, she had to take a break due to a knee injury. After her leg was operated on, Carmen tried to make a comeback, but her leg would start hurting when she had to stand for long. This meant she had to give up dentistry, which was far from ideal as the job apparently paid about $30 per hour.
To keep paying the bills and ensure that her business as a Makeup Artist remains afloat, Carmen started to work as a Delivery Driver for Uber Eats. She also took up a job in the field of home health tech. Carmen shared that her earnings from Uber Eats are not as much as some might think because the work is not as simple as one might think. On-road delays and restaurant waiting times often add up to several wasted hours.
Where is Carmen Now?
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Carmen has seemingly continued her work as a Makeup Artist. She shared in the documentary show that she enjoyed doing makeup. It all started when people around Carmen complimented her on her skills and requested that she do their makeup. When the requests kept piling in, she decided to create a booking link and share it publically, leading to her earnings from working as a Makeup Artist.
As of writing, Carmen seems to be working hard to keep her work and business going. She has expressed her desire to have a mentor as she is attempting to establish a business and needs a steady source of income from the same. One constant ray of sunshine in Carmen’s life is her daughter, Aubrey-Gabriella, whom the budding Makeup Artist adores deeply. The two seem to have an unshakable and adorable bond. Nevertheless, we wish Carmen and her loved ones the best in their lives and hope they have a fantastic future.
