“I came to NY seven years ago, started my way from the bottom as a cleaner, and eventually moved into the kitchen to work in prep and eventually moved onto the line. I really love the whole vibe and how it all works. Back in Mexico I always wanted to study gastronomy but I could never afford it; I eventually found a way to fund my dream career by working hard and learning as much as I could as I worked my way up.

That’s the beautiful thing about this industry, it doesn’t matter what background you come from or what financial situation you’re in; if you’re willing to put in the work and learn, anyone can make a career in this industry!”
