Going to HCCC not only allowed me to develop my skills and build a solid network but also to find a group of people that have the same passion as me. Joining the culinary club and partaking in the school's events made me see how the people involved were not just students and staff, but a family. The 2 years that I spent there were much more than I expected them to be, and I wouldn't change a thing.
