“I started when I was 16! I’ve been working day and night in everything from bakeries to fine dining over the last four years now, still trying to learn about all perspectives and angles of this industry.

One thing I’m super keen on is finding balance; I love cooking and I love my profession, but I want to have enough time during the day to do my own things, so right now I have one part-time job at night and one in the mornings, which gives me some afternoons off.

This is my time! I’m young and want to gain as much experience as possible, but I do want to have time to learn and focus on areas I want to improve so that one day I can open my own place and teach others everything I’ve been taught.”
