Coming to BYU, I’ve also started to learn to cook. Back home, I was too accustomed to the pampered life of having everything handed to me all the time. I always had the maid do my laundry, make my bed, clean my room, iron my clothes or make me food whenever I asked. Doing all this myself now, it has made me a lot more responsible.

After the encouragement I received on the phone from my mom, I felt it was time to start experimenting. I did my groceries from a close by store and got some brief instructions from my mom on how to cook. Finally, I cooked some potatoes in black pepper, chili powder and southern spices. Along with that, I fried some chicken. It worked out pretty well.

I hope to learn more over the years. Maybe even make some Pakistani dish. As for now, the adventures continue!
