From a young age, I’ve always loved to cook. When I was little I would go to my grandma’s house and help her make bread and sarmale and at nine years old she gave me my first cookbook. However, as much as I love cooking, it could never come close to the love I feel when I am with my family and friends and the joy it brings me to make them smile and laugh. Through this class and really thinking about what is important to me, I have realized that my purpose is to make people feel loved and happy by using food and empathy to assess and react to any given situation.

I would very much love to have a family of my own one day, but before that happens, I am going to need a place to plant my roots. I would love to own my home by the age of 29 with land so that way I can get a few farm animals for personal use and to show my kids where food really comes from and to enjoy having them as quirky pets.

To prove my training is improving, there is a spec test for each station and a certification that comes along with passing each test and the more certificates I have the more proof I have that I am mastering this business. To become a sous chef, it will take about five years to get there from my current position on line and once I’ve made sous chef it will be about another three years till finally making executive chef. My grandma on my mom’s side used to work in a kitchen and she is the heart of my family. She is always cooking and she expresses her love with food. If you ask for one helping you get three and she beams when you love her food and she is the one who got me started with my love of food. To be able to make it to the top of the restaurant rank and have her come to eat and serve her food that am in charge of would make my heart sing. I am an Achiever and an Activator and when my heart is set on something there is nothing that will stop me from achieving it. However, making it to the top rank is
