Intern Story: When Yixi emigrated from China at age 14, her limited knowledge of English made it difficult to connect with others and feel confident speaking up. The one place Yixi trusted herself was the kitchen, where she prepared family dinners and immersed herself in foreign cultures through food.
Yixi decided to apply her passion for food to start a health club at school and create community. Soon after, she resolved to pursue a college degree in nutrition. Eager to practice English in a professional setting and earn steady income for school expenses, Yixi applied to Sprouts Chef Training.
Yixi would be thrilled to have your help funding her Chef Training internship at Little Bee Baking in San Francisco. Your donation helps Yixi forge a brighter career for herself.
