I'm a 3rd year engineering student. Food has always my passion but I somehow never found the motivation to start cooking until few months ago when the World on a plate event took place. After attending that, it gave me the motivation I needed and since then cooking has a been something very dear to me. I could also see it becoming a career in the near future.
