Intern Story: Growing up, Fable’s relationship with their single mother affected their self-image and confidence. They ran away from home on multiple occasions, and they were placed in foster housing. Cutting ties with their mother, seeking mental health support, and reconnecting with their father and extended family helped Fable move forward.
Moving in with their grandparents finally gave Fable a supportive and loving environment, which motivated them to return to school with a brand new can-do outlook. In school, Fable was naturally attracted to the culinary and gardening classes. With renewed hope, they took a leap into the culinary world and applied to Sprouts Chef Training. Under the guidance of Chef Felix at Sorrel in San Francisco, Fable will develop their culinary skills. We are eager to see their confidence grow, as cooking dreams come within reach.
