Today we’d like to introduce you to Anthony Steward.
Hi Anthony, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I first started when I was a kid, my mother, Sharon Steward was my first teacher. She always wanted to open her own restaurant but passed away before she could fulfill her dream. I chose from that day forward to continue on her dream. Here I am 25 years later with the experience I’ve earned from various places from Mom and Pop restaurants to companies like Hilton and Four Seasons.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Some of the struggles along the way were that chefs didn’t see any promise in me at all. Some didn’t want to advance because they felt I was good enough to stay at the position I had.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Right now, I’m a security guard for Johns Hopkins Hospital. But, I’m known for me being a Chef and having 25 years in hospitality. I’m proud that I’ve been able to be in various places as well as meet a lot of people. What sets me apart from others is that I care about my work and sharing what I know with others.
How do you define success?
Success to me is doing what you love doing everyday. Making sure your home and family are okay and being respected.
