It feels really good because it’s been a long journey since I got here. It feels like quite an achievement because I didn’t know a lot about cooking when I started the program, but I kept catching up and catching up and here I am today. It’s such a wonderful feeling and I didn’t know that I was the first international student, so that makes it extra special.
