Hi Jasmin! Tell us about yourself and your relationship with Roza’s Gourmet.
Hi yum. Readers! Roza’s Gourmet has always been a big part of my life. Mum started the business when I was four, so even as a little girl I remember helping her out in the kitchen by washing herbs and labelling jars. That being said, I never expected to become Director when I was older!
When I left school, I actually studied a business degree (at my Dad’s insistence) and landed a graduate role in a large firm. However, corporate life didn’t suit me – so I quit to pursue my passion for acting instead.
That’s when Dad suggested I work part-time at Roza’s Gourmet to make some extra income and alleviate the pressure on him. After a few years of trying to juggle the family business and acting, I realised I wasn’t giving my all to either pursuit. I had to make a choice and I couldn’t give up on Mum’s business, so I took it on in 2011.
