Yan Torres, 2019

Yan is 23 years old, originally from Caguas, Puerto Rico, and the first female recipient. She dreams of opening a sustainable restaurant, focused on teaching the community about sustainability and empowering people of scarce resources to start a career in culinary arts. Aarón’s mother, Zarela Martinez, a strong Latina chef, has been mentoring Yan and has truly taken Yan under her wing. Yan has studied in Barcelona, Spain and San Juan, Puerto Rico prior to entering our program.
