Class 2, 2018

Shirone, Class 2

Shirone is one of our awesome students from Class 2, 2018!

What gets you up in the morning, what drives you?

“What drives me is to continue to provide for my self, to continue becoming the best man that I can be. For me to achieve the goals I actually want to achieve and actually experience new things as well.”

What’s your big goal?

“In my future I’ll hopefully be owning my own restaurant like Chef Eugene, like Chef Joe. They inspire me so much and motivate me to become my own boss.”

What’s your favorite thing you’ve done so far, since you’ve been here?

“My favorite thing is the back of house. It actually keeps me busy, y’know.  Makes me want to pursue something, actually become a cook.”

What’s one thing you want folks to know about Cafe Reconcile?

“What y’all do very well is you push all the students who come here to make them actually want to do something with themselves. To stay active, to keep busy, to actually at the end of the day see what they can do in life. And not always feel like ‘well you’re gonna be the next statistic’, or ‘you’re not anything.’ You can do anything you set your mind to. Y’all help us reach our goals cause you know we have that potential.”

Best thing on the menu?

“Catfish Poboy.”
