Help Me Go To... CULINARY SCHOOL!!!

Hi everyone! My name is Gina Medrano. I am a 30 year old babysitter. Believe it or not, this was not my dream career. However, this job and a handful of other "not my dream career" jobs have been keeping food on my table, clothes on my back, and a roof over my head for so many years. So, before I go any further, I want to say thank you to all of those non-career jobs, for I am forever grateful for them.  Unfortunately, like many people, those jobs were never going to be able to take me to the next level. Being on the same level for so long, and not knowing anything else had put me at a stagnant level of comfort, and not only that, FEAR. Fear that I was never going to amount to anything. Fear that other people were better at whatever other job or life I had envisioned for myself. Fear of success and the biggest F... FAILURE. Fear is one hell of a drug and I'm ready to QUIT! At the very core of my heart and soul is the me that is waiting to finally start my life. I am starting with my absolute passion in life, and that's COOKING!!! For those of you I have had the pleasure to host and prepare a meal for, I hope you have seen, TASTED, and loved what I had to offer. (Except that stuffed cabbage I tried to make that one time, sorry babe.) Now, as good as I think I am, I know I can really push myself to learn and perfect my craft. This is where I came up with the great idea to drop everything and go to... (drum roll..) CULINARY SCHOOL!!!    So, referring back to paragraph two where my long time and current job situation only covers my daily struggle, I am shamelessly (ego aside), asking for help. All of the help I receive will go directly to the cost of tuition. ANY AMOUNT is welcome and is GREATLY APPRECIATED! This would be absolutely life changing because I will finally be doing what makes me the happiest.  I can't THANK YOU enough and cannot wait to share my journey with you all.  * Next enrollment date for the program of my choice, Professional Culinary Arts, begins on FEBRUARY 20TH. I realize that that is a very short window but don't fret because my tuition does not need to be paid in full by that date.* ** Please help because when I grow up I want to be a Chef and feed all of you wonderful people.**                                                                                              With Immense Love,                                                                                                     Gina Medrano ☆☆ Follow my journey and keep track of how I'm doing on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook @eyechoosefood ☆☆
