I have been in the USA for the past five years. When I arrived, the only job that opened the doors for me was the kitchen, so it all started out of necessity.

When I discovered the kitchen’s immediate impact on me and my passion for cooking, I pursued the career and studied culinary. In my head, I never imagined this would become my career. A few lessons that changed my work ethic and became part of my lifestyle were the importance of organization, punctuality, and respect for others in the kitchen, regardless of race, color, and background. More than just a job, it has become my passion and lifestyle.
