What is the most important lesson that you learned in your time at AWR?

During my stay here I've learned that success does not come easy, it takes heart and dedication. I am happy that I was given a chance to grow and make myself better. It doesn't matter if you start at the bottom, hard work and perseverance will take you to the top. 

When you cook for yourself at home, what is your favorite thing to make and why?

Fried chicken, to be honest, it’s because it is fast and easy to make – haha!
