We wouldn't be what we are today without the fabulous folks who make it happen.
Meet one of the most loyal One Girl Cookies team members: Nydia! She has been with us for ten years and knows almost every aspect of the business. You never see her because she's behind the scenes filling, wrapping, and packaging your favorite cookies and whoopie pies. In fact, she used to make all the deliveries as well! She's done it all.
Where are you from originally?
I was born in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
What brought you to New York City?
I moved here with my parents when I was a teenager. Only moved back to Mexico for four years when I went to school.
How long have you lived in New York City? What neighborhood?
I've been in New York for 20 years and live in the Bronx.
How do you get to OGC every day?
What do you do when you are not at One Girl Cookies?
I'm a mom so my day never ends! After work I still have to go home, take care of my kids, and cook dinner. I also like to go to the gym.
What made you apply for a job here?
I started at One Girl Cookies during the first holiday season and had so much fun that I kept working here. I enjoy it because it's so different.
What are some of your past jobs?
I used to work for a jeweler in Rockefeller Center. I was in charge of transporting all the diamonds around New York City, it was so scary!
What did you study in school?
I went to school in Mexico for cosmetology. I actually really enjoy giving manicures and pedicures... but only to my friends!
When it comes to snacks, do you prefer sweet or savory?
Both! Nothing too sweet, though.
