Intern Story: River’s experience with bullies dimmed his self confidence and interest in school. It wasn’t until he found the courage to speak up that things took a turn for the better, and River realized the value of personal advocacy. He set out to do what he loved, no matter what others thought.
Pursuing his interests meant rekindling a love for cooking. River remembered his parents teaching him a recipe for fried rice, and it became his goal to cook restaurant-caliber meals at home. As a Sprouts Chef Trainee at Componere Catering, River will gain confidence and cooking skills to use in and out of the kitchen. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for River!
