Julie M.

Education:

Best food ever?

For me, nothing compares to the comfort food feeling of the Eastern European cuisine – spatchcocked roast chicken with boiled small yellow potatoes that are glazed with butter, garlic and dill sauce. The side dish is a salad consisting of fresh tomatoes / cucumbers / sweet onions with dill and sour cream. One does not go without the other so it’s all one dish.

Favorite books?

Alexander Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo

What inspires you?

It’s not original but I’ve always been inspired by acts of kindness, selflessness and perseverance. It’s very easy to be focused on your own life, problems, wants and needs. It’s much harder to put other people ahead of yourself and also not get discouraged when your journey is not as smooth as you’ve anticipated.
