    I realised I wanted to be part of the food industry when I discovered the beauty of making homemade marshmallows. It was mesmerising to see that my own two hands were able to create such a technical candy. Personally I see art in every form. Art has played an important role in my life and food is a way that I can express myself instead in paper form. I see my life heading towards the food industry because I am passionate about food and I want my life to revolve around it so that I can proudly say that I love my job and all it offers.
