People...I'm in PEOPLE! It's still kind of unbelievable to me and it all happened so fast. An editor reached out to me via email just a couple of months ago. She asked me if I wanted to be featured in a segment about chefs who have lost weight in their annual Half Their Size issue.
I said, "HELL YES!" Duh.
She interviewed me, I sent some photos, and then I kind of got lost in the holidaze. Until one of my clients called me (hi Kerry) on January 12 basically screaming in the phone that she had just gotten home and opened up her People magazine subscription to see ME. She was so excited. It was adorable. I had no idea the magazine was already out!
The thing about this that I am most proud of is that I'm the only woman featured...AND the only person of color. The food industry is, like many other industries, dominated by white men. However, that doesn't stop me. I hire women, I service (predominately) women, and I make it well known that my business is owned by a PROUD, Black, queer woman.
This experience and the exposure that's come with it are invaluable to me. I am grateful for all the new customers, fans, followers, and people who have been reaching out from around the world to let me know how inspirational I am.
Stay tuned, cos I'm not done yet!
I think you can still find this issue on the racks now so go grab one! Love you all!
