Jennifer's Story

My passion is culinary arts.

When I first discovered my passion for Culinary Arts, I was about ten years old. I would always stand close to my parents when they were cooking something, constantly asking them questions about why they added what they added and why the did something the way they did. The first time that I cooked my first meal I was so glad that in the end, everyone ended up liking my food, they thought that I did a good job for my first time cooking. I remember that I felt so glad because everyone turned out to like my food and thought that I should do this more often. For me, I will always remember that moment because it's going to be a moment that will always stay with me. From that point on I have always thought that cooking is something that I would like to expand my knowledge in.

I believe that attending to Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program will help me pursue my passion for the culinary arts because it will help me become better at cooking. I think that this will help me realize that I am not just a waste of space that I can actually do something with my life and that I can actually do something exceptional. A reason that I think this would be a good experience for me because I want to be able to get out of my comfort zone and gain new experiences. A second reason that I think that getting into this program will help me is because I want to be able to do something new, interact with people that I have never talked to and be with people that I normally wouldn't be with. My passion will develop over time and continue growing with this program.

A Note from Ms. Rutland, Jennifer's Mentor

Jennifer is a fantastic candidate for the Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program because she interested in learning culinary skills and she is highly responsible and hard working. Jennifer will benefit from participating in this program because she has not had an opportunity like this in the past; being exposed to gourmet culinary techniques will be an incredibly enriching experience for her.
