When I came to Australia to live I didn’t have strong English skills so I couldn’t speak well and I couldn’t understand anyone. I worked in a café as a barista. I watched the chef in the kitchen and he was happy to show me how a kitchen worked. It was from then that I really found my love for the kitchen. I was reminded of memories seeing my mum cooking when I was little and then when I saw that chef with all his passion for cooking and it was when I decide to start a course in commercial cookery. 

My goal is to become a lecturer one day, I know that this is going to take a while for me so I have a long pathway to follow and I will keep working in kitchens, I will keep gaining knowledge and getting experience to follow through until I get to my goal that’s to become a lecturer.
