Letter Carrier, US Postal Service
Nidia is a letter carrier and has been delivering the mail on the same route for 18 years. She starts at 7:00 in the morning, sorts the mail, then starts out on her five-hour delivery route. She has been walking her route, watching the city go through its many changes over the years, and though the job can be dangerous in some areas, she loves experiencing her city from the sidewalks every day.
