Angelina Jorge

Angelina Jorge is a senior at Johnson & Wales University as a Culinary Arts and Food Service Management major. With a concentration in Wellness & Sustainability, it only makes sense that her passion for this industry led her to study abroad in Costa Rica. Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, this chocoholic author aspires to pursue a Master’s Degree in Culinary Arts Education. With six years of industry experience already under her belt, it’s no wonder she can manage juggling her two jobs, planning a wedding, and staying on Dean’s List. Writing has always been a necessary vice in Angelina’s life. She says, “Writing for me is a way to make sense of my thoughts, to solidify my feelings. Writing is a desire I will never be able to satiate.” You can check out some of her other work at JWUCampusHerald or just check out her profile on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
