When she was in college, Dr. Nabiha Islam worked at a Dairy Queen in Markham, Ontario. Her boss, Yvonne Lavasidis, supported her great ambitions. Now that she's made it, Dr. Islam hasn't forgotten where she came from and who helped her along the way. So she wrote a note to Lavasidis, thanking her for caring and helping.

Lavasidis told the Today show that she tries to help student employees at her family's Dairy Queen follow their dreams:

"We're all university grads and we know what it's like to be a student," she said. "It can be difficult to manage life, school, and a part-time job to contribute to your family's income or help pay the bills. We like to create a positive environment. When they have exams, papers, tests, sometimes we help them study or give them days off when they need it. We try to be flexible that way."
