“One thing I can say is that when things go all wrong, the kitchen has always been there for me! During the pandemic, I lost my job and I had a DUI, lost my car and then was left without a home. I didn’t receive government unemployment help at all unlike many others, and I had no other way to fight. However, growing up as a kid and remembering my family and my younger days when I used to get on a crate to be able to reach the kitchen table, reminded me of the lessons I learned in the kitchen, and that there is always a way out, no matter how bad things look.

If you find a goal or have a dream that wakes you up at night in excitement, work towards it. Eventually, things will take a turn for the better for you, you just have to keep on pushing! Focus on your vision, take care of yourself!”
