“There are no mistakes, only feedback to perfect what was determined impossible! Never give up, never stop learning, never stop trying.”
LDEI Birmingham’s first scholarship recipient
What this scholarship means to me?
The Les Dames d’Escoffier scholarship has given me the opportunity to perfect my culinary gifts through education. It has given me the support and expertise of talented women who understand success and are successful. Women who are willing to share and encourage me to achieve my culinary dreams.
Our dreams are like recipes that lead us to success. We configure, prep, and prepare. Many times, the recipe must be reconfigured over and over again. But, each time the feedback allows us to perfect what was deemed impossible!
Thank you for this opportunity,
Daphne Patterson Jones, culinary student at Jefferson State Community College
