When I was a student at Detroit Public School's Hally Middle School, I presented a project on a career as a chef for my career day project. But I loved to cook even before that, ever since I was a little kid.
What's your food philosophy?
You've got to have passion to be a chef! You have to have a real love for creating good food as well as eating good food. If your heart's not in your cooking, it will definitely show!

someone coming up after me. It's never too late to follow your dream!
