My name is Jamie and my kids have empowered me. I did not feel love from the home I come from, a family of drug addiction. My Granny adopted me and my lil brothers, so I carry her last name. I met my real mother when I was 7 years old. My granny brought us to Chicago when I was 5 years old from New Orleans.  I didn’t feel like I had a childhood because I was always taking care of my siblings.
After moving around a lot, I found myself pregnant at 15 years old, but my child’s father was killed in 2008.  Having my daughter helped me to focus and graduate high school.  I went to cosmetology school soon after. At 21 years old I had my second child.  Life was rough.  We lived in different places, with different people.  We even slept in abandoned buildings.  I was able to put myself through culinary school and found a passion in cooking.  My kids empower me and my dream is to have a food truck and a restaurant of my own.
