Oneil Batchelor has been a dedicated member of the Georgetown University community for the past 13 years. If you have ever met Oneil, you'll know that he’s one of the nicest people on campus. He always has a positive attitude no matter what he's going through. Oneil is grateful for his job as a maintenance worker; however, cooking is his first love. Ever since he was 10 years old, his dream has been to open his own Jamaican-style restaurant. Oneil has been praying for the right moment to open a restaurant in the Washington D.C. area, but due to family and financial obligations, he's had to put his dreams on hold.
Oneil has been fighting tooth and nail to make his dream come true. He juggles his day job as a maintenance worker while cooking and preparing for the Georgetown University Farmer's market during the night. His story just goes to show that it's never too late to follow your dreams!
This page has been created to help support Oneil’s dream of opening his own restaurant. ALL funds raised (minus GoFundMe's fees) will be given to Oneil for his business. Please help out and donate today. Anything helps and no donation is too small!
