Daar stond ik dan met klotsende oksels en knikkende knieën. Ik mocht de grote BCC- en Youtube-ster Donal Shekan interviewen. Met 7 kookboeken, een eigen tv-show en meer dan 228 duizend volgers op Instagram is dit een dosis inspiratie waar je blij van wordt.

Het interview is in het Engels omdat ik het echt “Donal” wilde houden. Wat een ontzettend lief en enthousiast mens is dit. Hij nam alle tijd en heeft mijn Instagram ook nog even onder de loep genomen!

Here we go!!!

Who is Donal?
I’m a food writer, TV host and home cook!

What did you want to become as a child?
I’m pretty sure I wanted to be a cook, at least that’s what I spent most of my time doing. I loved watching food TV-shows and reading my mom’s cookbooks!

Are you a dreamer?
Absolutely! I love dreaming big! Many of the things I do now started as a dream for me and I threw myself into achieving them.

What’s your mission in life?
To encourage and inspire others to find confidence in the kitchen and personally for me to maintain balance and happiness.

What are you most proud of?
My son Noah- he’s only 6 months old and is teaching us so much!

If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do?
On Paradise island, running a beautiful little destination for food lovers!

Donal Shekan, dromen najagen

Tenslotte nog een advies

Do you have a good advice to help other people starting to do what they really love?
Write down what you want to achieve and then spend a large amount of time working towards your goals. Look at the steps that will take you closer to them. If you drive a car in the night , you can only see a few meters in front of it, but knowing where the final destination is is the key!
