If you’re lucky, every once in awhile in life, you meet someone that truly inspires you. If you’re even luckier, you’ll get to know this person personally and grow to love them. Fadia Kader is one of those people for me. Part time marketing maven, part time world traveler, part time protector of magic, part time great cook, and. . . .just a full time amazing spirit.
Fadia started #CookingWithKader, a hashtag of her food posts that have grown from just a few random meals to a beautifully curated selection of recipe and cooking tutorials. From instagram, to tumblr, to snapchat and meerkat, I’ve seen this hashtag (and brand) grow. Not only are the recipes cultured and delicious, the visuals are amazing as well. She’s a fun teacher, and already my favorite chef.
I’m reading The Alchemist right now, and one of my favorite quotes from it says, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”. About a month ago, Fadia took on a culinary challenge. A scholarship competition, where, despite being a tad bit shy and nervous, she took to video to speak on her Culinary Voice for a chance to win. Today is the last day of this competition, and I believe that I’ve voted every single day of it.
I could have written this post sooner, but on today, the last day to VOTE, I decided to write this as a bit of inspiration. Winner or not Fadia, you have inspired and helped so many people. Winner or not, you WILL go to ICE and achieve your dreams, as I believe the universe is conspiring to help you achieve your personal legend.
