Hello everyone. I am 20 years old and I have to choose a career path.I started cooking as a hobby at 16 years old and I started thinking about going to culinary school but in the end I didn't. Now I have started thinking about it a lot more but when I went online and started researching about this career path everything I could fing was about how horrible the industry is and I got discouraged. I am not worried about the long hours or if it is difficult, my biggest problem is if I would be able to balance my journey of becoming the greatest cook I can be with my personal life. In the end I chose to start studying and sit my college exam in a year and a half but every time I grab my chefs knife to cook dinner I am thinking if I am making the wrong choice and if in ten years I wouldn't like to be just a home cook. Thanks for reading and I hope you can share your opinion.
