My Travel Story

Welcome and thank you for supporting my goals! I am transitioning from a career as a teacher to a career as a chef. I would like to fulfill my passion for cooking and educating through an outreach program that would teach kids how to prepare healthy foods. I believe that future generations need programs that will give them an outlet for their talents and give them opportunities to change their communities one bite at a time. The rate of childhood obesity and illnesses is staggering. Many can be reversed and eradicated through healthy nutrition. My program would help communities build sustainable urban gardens, cook fresh foods, and learn how to make healthy life choices. 

To help me reach my goals I am attending culinary art school in the fall. I am also completing a leadership program designed to teach me how to achieve my professional and personal goals. This program has helped me network with other people committed to making this world a win/win place. By completing this training I will not only have a strong network of people to work with, I will also have a personal coach who will help ensure that I meet my goals. 
I completed the first course July 2018 and I have never felt so pumped to run towards my future. The second course will advance the skills I learned in the basic course and prepare me to take the final leadership course. 

I have spent the last four years teaching at a title 1 school and it goes without saying that I put in a lot of personal resources to run a successful classroom. No matter how much I put in financially and emotionally I loved my children, community, and coworkers! Chasing my dream now means a lot to me and they have all been supportive. I will definitely return and base my program in the place where I got my start.

I will be in L.A. for a week and would like help covering the airfare, accommodation, and local travel for the duration of the training. My finances are tied up supporting myself and my sister as well as moving 3 hours away to go to school in November.
Your help is essential in reaching my goals and I greatly appreciate your donation!
