“Take the chance. Take the opportunity while you have it.” Ayana discovered CCSC through her uncle, a Class 59 graduate! She says he speaks highly of the School so she knew it would be the right fit for her, and the fact that there is no cost for students was a just bonus. Ayana started cooking in 2020 when she wanted to lose weight and needed to provide for herself. Ayana says the first meal she ever made was salmon and rice, and after that, she was hooked! Cooking gives her peace and makes her happy. Ayana is looking forward to graduating from CCSC and making her family proud. She says that everything she does is for her son and her mom.
