Back in Venezuela I was studying to become a journalist. I had everything set, but in the end I had to leave to find a better future. When I arrived, I quickly realized that most jobs require a lot of english, the only place I was immediately accepted was in kitchens. Even if they didn’t speak spanish, we found a way to communicate. You begin developing a type of kitchen language within your team. There were never any judgements in this place, and I’ve always felt like I was part of the team.
