My name is Samuel David Ramirez Calderon, I am the youngest of my siblings. Although I was born in the department of San Marcos, I grew up and went to school in the city of Jalpatagua, department of Jutiapa. Before my parents had to move to another place, they worked in a hotel. When I was a little boy, they always told me incredible stories about working there
Our economic resources were often limited, but we always had food at our table by God’s mercy. On many occasions for special seasons, my mother and sister prepared dishes to sell such as: paches de papa, garnachas, and fiambre. I went door-to-door in order to sell the dishes. I was happy to offer the food and my greatest satisfaction was when we sold all the dishes we prepared.
Currently, I have completed the courses for the Bachelor of Hotel, Tourism, and Gastronomy Management. For now, I am just waiting for the processing of some documents that are required to solicit my private final exam. I am happy and satisfied that I chose this career. I have met incredible people and I have acquired new knowledge. Overall, I have lived, in person, so many of the stories people told me about life.
Like anyone, I have many aspirations in life. One of them is to have my own restaurant and publicize the dishes my mother and sister used to make. I also want to provide plates of food to those who are in need.
