"Whilst competing in the various FutureChef Finals, I gained a lot of confidence and became more confident with timings during the competition and using equipment I’m not used to. I was also pushed further than normal and when I made it to the Regional Final I felt a wave of achievement. I definitely feel more confident and I am now considering a career in hospitality. I would like to build up my skills so they are the best they can possibly be. I would like to become a chef and do some traveling around the world, or become a Hospitality Teacher so I can teach others about food and cooking."
