Tell us about any challenge you have faced along with your professional life
It was challenging to start a new business in the U.K. because I lacked English communication skills. Therefore, I had to work on learning this new language. And once I started building my business, I haven’t stopped growing professionally and achieving different professional and personal goals every day.
Tell us about something that you’re very proud of
I’m very proud of my business as I’m always trying to reflect the Colombian culture. I want to bring back some beautiful memories to the Colombians in London. Also, new memories to people who haven’t visited this beautiful country before. Therefore, everyone can experience the Colombian culture and its gastronomy.
“I feel proud of showing the culture and gastronomy of Colombia to the Colombians who miss their country, as well as people who haven’t visited this beautiful country before.”— Fabian Catano
