The life of a server in Lebanon is not luxurious.Salaries for servers vary, but $500 a month is often seen as generous remuneration.Leaving school early comes with a price.With her family based in Tyre, in the south, Awada wasn't able to afford university last year, so she waitressed and saved up the money. This year she has been in school for only about a month but has already visited the hospital once out of exhaustion. During the interview, Awada appeared fatigued but said she had grown so accustomed to work and her spell of exhaustion only kept her home for a little over a day.
