Hi everyone!, my name is Agusto.
I am making this campaign to start making possible my dream of attending culinary school, by doing a one year course at Barcelona (Spain) which starts this October 2022.
This is my story: As many of us, I lost my job during the peak of Covid 19. On that same time, I was forced (haha) by my friends to sign up for a national fusion cooking contest, as they knew I've always loved cooking. Surprisingly, I ended up getting the 3rd place among people who even attended culinary school and/or worked in the industry!
I was shocked, inspired and this made me realize that I should follow my childhood dream of becoming a cook/chef. When I was a kid I grew up watching cooking shows and people on TV (Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, etc) and I used to watch and help my mom making kimchi (korean national dish). She was my first cooking teacher and inspiration not only in the kitchen, but in life. Unfortunately she passed away a couple years ago because of cancer, but I want to make sure she watches me doing well proudly from above chasing my dream.
There are a couple things I would like to accomplish in this culinary journey of mine:
1. To open an amazing restaurant called "Naju" (my mom's hometown name, in her honor).
2. To become an renowned and an influential chef, being able to move masses and help in causes related to food, or for those in need (I take spanish Chef José Andrés as my inspiration).
3. Being able to contribute in R&D in new technology to make better food for humanity, considering its impact on climate change and people's health.
4. I will see in the road...
It seems like an ambitious plan right? but I hope you believe in me, I'll work hard and give my best with no regrets!
Thank you so much for reading until here, it means a lot to me!!
