For Vicky, cooking represents family. Vicky remembers waiting impatiently for their grandfather to come home to cook with them and the excitement when their uncle asked for help creating a new recipe.
These memories nourished Vicky when their mother started suffering from cardiac arrests and their uncle (who was a father figure to Vicky) passed away. Cooking was a steadying exercise that kept them going.
Vicky needs a community sponsor in order to complete their culinary internship at host restaurant Sobre Mesa and turn cooking into a sustainable career. Vicky is eager to develop advanced cooking skills, attend culinary school, and open a family restaurant. Help Vicky continue the tradition of love, family, and food with a donation.
