“I have a deep life long love for food.” -Jawed Halepota
Welcome back Story Tellers! Today’s main character is chef Jawed Halepota (@ja_wed_chef).
A former high-school dropout, Jawed has built lifelong relationships which have afforded him the opportunity to travel to Europe and South America as personal chef to former NY Knick, Kevin Seraphin, execute private dinner parties for members of the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, and most recently, become the personal chef to Marcus Smart of the Boston Celtics.
Jawed credits much of his success to building strong relationships, surrounding himself with winners, and taking full advantage of life changing opportunities that come his way.
