3 years ago Nadine walked into our kitchen at Yalbury cottage as our apprentice chef. In the beginning she had no self confidence and was afraid of her own shadow! Nadine is a real living proof that you can change your stars if you want to. We are so proud of Nadine as last week she completed her final degree in kitchen management, not only did she pass it but she passed with a distinction! It was a proud moment for me as I sat in her last business presentation and all I could think was “who is this person” as she spoke with such passion, confidence and enthusiasm. Yes we can teach but at the end of the day it comes down to the individual to make it happen and Nadine by herself made it happen!

Congratulations Nadine we are all so very proud of you. Keep changing those stars ????

Jamie, YC’s and Yalbury Team
