My path to graduation began in 2016 when I was 35 years old. I worked in the human services field working with people with disabilities for more than 14 years. I got as far up the company ladder as I could and I couldn’t go any further, due to
the higher positions always being full.
In 2016 my mom passed away and it made me seriously think about where I was in life and if I was truly happy. I realized that I had the potential to do so much more and I needed a change.
When I used to think of success, I had a pretty bad habit of always looking at the end result. I will be successful when...I will be successful if...
The last three years of my life showed me that there are levels to everything that you do in life. The acknowledgment of said levels and attaining them can and very much should be looked at as success. Two years ago, I lived in my car just so I could get into the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. I sacrificed. Mind you, I had a comfortable life for an unstable and relentless pursuit but I also had a vision: work for a Michelin starred restaurant and chef.
