When I was born, from my first words, I stuttered. It got worse in my teenage years. It was the kitchen that helped me grow out of it. I had a chef that said the stutter came from fear, so I needed to speak more to get rid of that fear. That was part of the growth. You know? I got through it when I started my first job as a kitchen leader, because I had to figure out how to communicate. The more that I grow into what I do, it grows my confidence.
Now? I think my stuttering is at twenty percent. I don’t think about it anymore, the only time is when it’s bad or when I’m upset. I care about other kids because I know what it’s like to grow up in a world where communication is essential. So how to get you help them go through. I think when someone helps another person, they help another. It’s a ripple effect. It’s like cooks, we help each other get better.
If you want to come alongside me as I try and encourage other young chefs overcome their fear, donate a little so that I can travel the countryside finding new, young Jamaican talent.
