Message from Leonor: “My name is Leonor and I am from Ecuador. I came to London 7 years ago. All my friends and family know me for being a wonderful cook. I am a kind and hard working person and I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new things. I love Ecuadorian food. Migrateful is a very important way for me to build my confidence. My heart beats every time someone speaks English to me in the street. This is why Migrateful is so important for me because it’s a chance for me to get over my fear of speaking English. Leading a cookery class feels like a real challenge because of having to be able to communicate in English – but I am excited about this challenge and excited to teach you my Ecuadorian recipes.”
