journeYoung : Your ultimate motivation?
Mirvaan: My ultimate motivation is my Family. Because of them, I am here and I want to prove my dad that the way he started his business from scratch, I can do that too. They are so proud of me and I can see that in their eyes.
jY : When was it you felt victorious?
Mirvaan: There have been many victorious moments, but when I got the Master Chef Apron and I showed it to my parents, that moment they came running & crying to hug me, which has become the most precious moment for me.
Getting into the competition at an early age is huge for me and it’s like a dream come true and maybe more than that.
jY : What was the scratch you started with?
Mirvaan: I started cooking when I was in school maybe at the age of 13 – 14.Out of hobby, I liked the aesthetics of food my mom cooked and I also started cooking for my family since. And I used to love that smile on my people’s face and that’s what polished my passion for food. I honestly believe that feeling is nothing less than winning this competition.
jY : When you feel that you are falling, what pulls you up?
Mirvaan: The only thing that motivates is being positive all the time. As if there’s nothing to lose and I’m just here to explore my passion. Even if I go home at any point of the competition I won’t feel bad because coming here and winning the first round of the audition is a prize to me in itself. Whatever comes my way is my mantra! And whenever I fall I just think about the after effects of it, and they definitely don’t have space over my positivity.
