"When I moved here, I didn’t speak any English. I started out washing dishes. Then I moved up to prep. Then one day I asked the cook if I could help make the soup, and he said: ‘No, the recipes are in English.’ But I told him, ‘Just show me once, and you’ll never have to show me again.’ So that’s how I started cooking. Now I manage the kitchen. But if my workers ever need help with the dishes, I wash the dishes."
