I made spices at my aunt’s house when I was nine years old. There was no significant reaction from the family to the desire to become a chef, but friends and relatives did criticize. My whole family is involved in the construction industry. When I expressed my intention to become a chef, my relatives told me to work with them, create new projects, but I said that I would not leave the field. My brother did BBA from Australia. Everyone used to give me examples of how quickly he settled down, but I never gave up.
I didn’t have much success in the first 16 years, but I never let frustration get the better of me and kept working. By the way, if I had not become a chef, I would not have been associated with the construction industry, but would have been a doctor and of course a surgeon.
