Message from Priscille:
“My name is Priscille and I’m from Cameroon. I grew up within a very modest family but I had a happy childhood. Our house was always full of joy, laughter, good conversation and squeals of delight. Cameroon has a reputation for being a very sociable country, so it’s very common to see neighbours and relatives sharing a meal on a regular basis. I developed an understanding of the importance of creating bonds and happiness through good food from a young age. My mum was my teacher. I began with little tasks such as peeling vegetables, onions and garlic. As time went by, I was introduced to more elaborate meals. When I was 11, I cooked my first full meal of a traditional okra soup with prawns and foufou, a party was thrown on my behalf where people from neighbouring households came with nuts, fruits and vegetables as gifts to celebrate the accomplishment of me becoming a reliable chef in their eyes. Sadly, I had to leave that behind and come to Uk.
When I arrived, things weren’t as straightforward as I had imagined. I found it extremely challenging to integrate and interact with people. I was suffering from post traumatic stress and the language barrier didn’t make it any easier. I decided to join some organisations who could help me to work through my challenges. Once being among them, I began to apply the lessons I learnt back into my everyday life. I started cooking for people regularly. When I was offered the opportunity to join Migrateful, I was thrilled. I’m very happy to be able to share some of my cooking knowledge but more importantly, to be surrounded by the joy, laughter and conversations that surround a good meal…”
