BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Roshara Sanders is living her dream life through food and teaching. But it wasn't always this way.
At age seven, the Bridgeport native fell in love with cooking, eventually attending Bullard-Havens Technical High School to learn the craft. It was during a class visit to the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park that she knew that was where she belonged.
But, as the only child of a single mother growing up in the projects, money was an issue. Despite being accepted into CIA at 17, she enrolled in the U.S. Army and spent the last two years of her enlistment as a cook, following deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.
