Can success start with a cheesecake?

In this installment of “More than Meets the Eye,” a video-series where delving into the lives of Strayer University students, we meet chef and entrepreneur Dave.

Dave has wanted to run his own kitchen since the second grade.  But after his mother passed away, he became very “go with the flow”, losing his passion for cooking amidst the heartbreak. It wasn’t until a year later, when he made the cheesecake she always baked him on his birthday, that his passion was reawakened.

Now, in pursuit of a degree at Strayer University, he’s on his way to finally fulfilling his childhood dream. Dave never stops working and his unbridled passion has helped him flourish. Watch his amazing story.
