I am currently a student at the New School for Public Engagement in Manhattan pursuing a degree in Food Studies. All my life I have loved every aspect of food from cooking it to enjoying. Now that I am older I am becoming more aware of other aspects such as nutrition, food systems and the business of the food industry. I moved to New York to tackle my dreams of living in this fabulous city and having new life experiences. Specifically I am looking for success in the culinary world and ultimately hope to have my own restaurant. Until then I am learning all I can while trying new restaurants, searching for internships and jobs, as well as making my own culinary creations. The Yum Project is the story of my own trials, tribulations and successes as I embark on the journey to achieve my life goals. Someone once told me to make a career out of something you love or you will spend the majority of your life very unhappy. This is what brings me joy and I hope that my blog can bring a little joy to others.
