Make It Messy finally releases today, and I am so excited to share my story with my younger fans that have found a connection with the artistry of cooking. My journey has never been an easy one, I have had my share of obstacles, but giving up was never an option, redirecting certainly, but never giving up. Whatever your passion is in life, or even if you’re still a little uncertain, hard work and determination should always direct your steps. I was not necessarily born into a typical circumstance and expectations may not have foreseen me as part of the traditional grid, but life teaches you to “Step up to the challenge; don’t avoid it. Win or lose take the shot.” You are responsible for your choices, and sometimes it’s worth it to make things a little messy. I hope my life inspires you to dream big and go hard.
