Intern Story: Growing up, Sisma experienced violence, negativity, and abuse, which affected her focus in school and her connections with others.

Seeking escape, Sisma took to cooking. She mastered new recipes, studied the work of famous chefs, and prepared Thanksgiving dinner for her family. In the kitchen, Sisma had something to strive for: she wanted to become a professional chef. 

During her Sprouts internship, Sisma will work alongside Chef Katie at Greens Restaurant to turn her passion for cooking into a career. We cannot wait for Sisma to flourish with the support of a kitchen family and the mentorship of a seasoned chef.
