Life is food. Food is life.
My most memorable moments in life have centered around food. Early on in life, food taught me history, culture and traditions, and gave me belonging in a foreign country. Food has always connected me to myself and others no matter where in the world I may be. In food, I have found community, experiences and a shared humanity. Food is love.

I’m a woman, daughter, sister, friend, partner, mama, and an enthusiastic house chef who loves to connect with people. My family and I were resettled in Sweden as political asylees, and it was there that I found belonging through food. Cooking with my mother taught me so much about my heritage, culture, and traditions. Through food I found belonging in a foreign place.
