You can tell that some people aren’t always comfortable having this job. I guess it’s because they were, in one way or another, forced to leave their countries and their careers behind and find they are only welcomed in restaurant kitchens. I understand that frustration. This may not be the career that we had dreamed about. But, here we are.

I put those thoughts behind me. I started thinking about who I am today and how to be happy. I’m proud of what I do, and I will always be thankful to restaurant kitchens.
