Trainee story

Askari felt unfulfilled by traditional schooling. He was disheartened by bullying from peers and longed to be mentored by someone who appreciated his unique learning style. Identifying alternate forms of education, Askari took up coding, chess, and cooking. He was drawn to the blend of creativity and strategy required in each discipline. He wondered if cooking might be a source of income and passion worth exploring.With the help of his Sprouts Chef Training support system and chef mentor at Chop Bar, Askari will further his cooking skills. He looks forward to improving his technique in a way that could benefit his financial stability and sense of fulfillment long term.
