Desert talks to Shape Magazine about opening her first restaurant.
I’m an innovative person and have always set my own goals. I studied hospitality management at Florida International University. Entrepreneurship has always been a passion of mine along with acting and modeling, so I told myself, By the time I’m 25, I’m going to open a restaurant. So I did. I was blessed because my grandma sold her house, and gave me and my sister money to buy a house of our own. Instead, I used the money to start my career. I did it from scratch, and I’m proud of where I came from, and how I started.
