Fulfilling a Culinary Dream: Support My Journey to Le Cordon Bleu London!

by Julia Ovsyannikova in Hampton, England, United Kingdom

Hello everyone,

I'm Julia, and I'm here for a vote of confidence in my abilities and a belief in the power of dreams. :)

I'm reaching out with a heartfelt plea to support my passion for culinary excellence. I currently have the opportunity to study at Le Cordon Bleu London because I moved here from Ukraine due to the war in 2022.

For as long as I can remember, I've been captivated by the artistry and creativity of cooking, which started when I was a kid, thanks to my dearest grandmother Raisa, who was an extraordinarily talented chef. 

My biggest passion is to host dinners and cook for my dear friends and family. Ask anyone of my friends, and they will definitely tell you how serious I am about hosting dinners at my home - nobody would leave hungry.

Now, I have the opportunity to turn this lifelong dream into reality by studying at Le Cordon Bleu London, one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the world.

Becoming a professional chef has been my ambition since I first stepped into a kitchen. Despite being a certified Product Marketing Manager and building a successful career in international companies for 12 years, I've come to realize that my heart truly lies in the culinary world. I'm ready to pursue my dream because that's where my real passion lies, and what truly brings me joy in life is feeding people, making them happy, experiencing new flavours and cuisines.

Le Cordon Bleu's renowned culinary program (Diplôme de Cuisine with Internship Pathway, 12 months long; https://www.cordonbleu.edu/london/diplome-cuisine-internship/en) will provide me with the skills, knowledge, and experience I need to excel in this competitive industry.

However, pursuing this dream comes with significant financial challenges. The cost of a one-year tuition is daunting, and without your support, achieving my goal may remain out of reach. This diploma requires full-time onsite studying, which doesn't allow me to work. 

By contributing to my Crowdfunder campaign, you're not just helping me fund my education; you're investing in my future as a chef. With your generosity, I'll be able to immerse myself in the world of gastronomy, learn from industry experts, and gain hands-on experience that will shape my culinary journey for years to come.

Your support means more than just financial assistance; it's a vote of confidence in my abilities and a belief in the power of dreams. Together, we can turn my passion for cooking into a fulfilling career, and I promise to repay your kindness by sharing my culinary creations with the world and opening a small business to start the journey. 

Thank you for considering my cause. Please join me on this exciting adventure as I pursue my dream of becoming a professional chef at Le Cordon Bleu London.

Warm regards, 

Julia, The Chef to Be
