Between juggling a busy work schedule and caring for her three-year-old son, sous chef Rachel Broe thought her dream of becoming a certified Red Seal Chef would have to stay on the backburner. Then she found the recipe for a new future in 500 words or less. “I was completely overwhelmed when I found out I had won, it was a life-changing moment,” says Broe, who learned last summer that that an essay she had penned was selected as the top entry in a B.C.-wide competition organized by the Okanagan College Foundation, the College’s Trades and Apprenticeship department and Sun FM stations in Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton.
