When I was a child, my teachers and parents said to me, 'people who have no dreams of the future will not fly far away'.Because of those inspiring words from my parents and teachers, I tried to make inspired by to be a chef.
I am studying the simple cooks first and next started a complex type of cooking.I can improve my cooking skill by just trying to start cooking something small like fried rice ect.I want to study how to cook properly and hygiene management and try to apply it.
In the future I want to be a famous chef as I can cook many delicious dishes for my family and my friends and they are very happy to eat my cooking.On the other hand, I would like to be a computer expert that can fix and repair computers like an expert.Also I would like to open up a computer service shop in the future.I like my dreams because now days technologies are getting tougher and later on only some people that can fix computer technologies in the future.That's why I try to catch up to study the technologies now days so in the future I might help people who is in need of a computer expert.I will also try to stay on my studies now so I can still graduate on high school.I still don't know which one I should choose to my future but I choose to be an computer expert still cause I like to break things up to see what's in it cause I'm always curious what drives that thing to make it work for example the programs for a laptop.Sometimes when I open up a electronic , I can't reassemble them again hahaha.....so I studied first from my cousin who opened up a computer shop in bogor.Sometimes I followed him to the shop so I can see what is in the computers disk are like , and I also like to help him to repair a CPU cause I'm curious remember.I try to fix it with my cousin watching my every step I'm doing , if I do something wrong he will ask me to stop and he will explain to me how to do it.
I will try my best to do my dream job in the future, and if I fail or I have problems with my studies, I will keep on dreaming to overcome the problem and keep believing I will have a good life in the future.

You only have to look at the popularity of cooking shows to know there’s something undeniably appealing about becoming a chef. Whether your passion lies in creating beautiful modern dishes or tantalising desserts, your culinary aspirations are within your reach.
So how do you get to the top of the culinary world? We asked George Camilleri, head chef at a prestigious wine estate, to tell us how he landed his dream job and what advice he’d give to wannabe chefs looking to kick-start their own food journey…
How it all started…
“My passion for food started young, watching my Nonna make pasta and crostoli – to this day I swear no one can make crostoli as delicious as she did. I always loved food but I stumbled into the culinary industry by accident as the only job I could get as a teenager was as a sandwich hand in a local shop. I upgraded to a local pub kitchen as my friend worked behind the bar there and, well, who doesn’t want to work with their mates? Then one day the chef called in sick and I had to step up into the role and just get service going, and it all just grew from there!”
In the beginning…
“It’s a lot of hard work when you first start out. It’s a bit of a stereotype that chefs are really temperamental but there is a lot of truth to it as well. A certain kind of person seems attracted to the kitchen environment, and we’re all very particular about what we like and the way we like things to be done!
I was really hot-headed as a young chef and sometimes I think that held me back. I stormed out of a kitchen after two days because I felt the head chef was treating me unfairly, but in hindsight if a young apprentice was acting like I had been in my kitchen, I would do the exact same thing. So it’s all part of the learning curve, it’s all part of the journey that defines the kind of food you create.”
The first step…
“There really is a lot involved in a head chef role, which is why experience is so important. A culinary school can be a great place to start, but your hands-on experience will reveal if you can be a leader…or even if you want to be one.
“The first stepping stone in your career is to get an apprenticeship with a chef who is willing to teach you, and who has a good reputation for mentoring others. As you start honing your skills and refining your talent, you will have more opportunities to showcase your initiative and leadership skills, like running your own section. It’s going to take a while but it’s better to learn as much as you can rather than trying to climb the career ladder too quickly and burning out.”
The tough times…
“Along the way you will have some tough times of course. For me, the worst part of being a chef is definitely the cost to my personal life. The kind of hours and intensity required for this kind of work doesn’t leave much time for socialising and your relationships can really suffer.
“But on the other hand, I’ve had so many amazing opportunities, including working with amazing chefs and travelling around the world to really expand my food knowledge. I’ve worked in kitchens in Japan, Singapore and Portugal and I can’t imagine any other kind of life for myself. The experiences alone have made the sacrifices worth it.
The skills you need…
“People always make the mistake of thinking that being a chef is somehow glamourous, but it’s really not, especially when you first start out! That’s why the most crucial aspect of this job is a real love and passion for food. You need to genuinely enjoy every aspect of it, from the planning and preparation, right through to plating up beautiful dishes. If food doesn’t genuinely excite you, then this isn’t the job for you. You’re going to spend a lot of hours slaving in a kitchen, sometimes 16 hours a day, and sometimes you’ll question everything in your life that led you there. Passion and perseverance will get you through.
“If you want to be a chef you need a lot of patience, a sense of adventure, a willingness to work hard and the desire to constantly learn and grow. You’ll never know everything there is to know, so you’ll never stop learning new things.
“It’s always important to manage your expectations, you’re not going to get a top role straight away. Remember that being a head chef is a management position, so you’re going to need skills beyond just being able to create beautiful food. You need to be able to organise and motivate others, and oversee the day to day running of a kitchen, including designing menus and even marketing the place.”
