[01:15.05]Jessica Addy is 22. 杰西卡・阿迪,22岁。 [01:16.90]She traded a life pulling pints for a job on a dairy farm. 她放弃了在酒吧的工作,去了一个奶牛农场工作。 [01:20.53]Its life-changing. “这是改变人生的事情。 [01:22.39]I wouldnt ever change my life now. 我永远不会改变我现在的生活。 [01:26.20](I have) just so much motivation for the job and its probably the best thing Ive ever done. 我对这份工作充满动力,这可能是我做过的最好的事情。” [01:32.21]And thats the message farmers are keen to promote - that the UKs farmland is not just pretty, but a perfect place to work. 这就是农民们渴望宣传的信息:英国的农田不仅漂亮,而且是完美的工作地点。
