She decided to make a U-turn in her career to venture into food and its recipes. According to her, her love for cooking and kitchen stuff started when she was a child, according to iol, this is what she has to say;
”Food and family went hand-in-hand when I was a child. In my grandmother’s house, the kitchen was the heart of the home. It was where people would eat, cry, get shouted at, and apologize. If anyone was in trouble, we would deal with it in the kitchen; if someone was happy or had good news, we would hear it in the kitchen. Out of the chaos and the discipline grew my love affair with cooking,”.
