I Left An Oil Company Job To Follow My Passion In Cooking -Nigerian Content Creator Winnifred


Beautiful Nigerian food content creator, food consultant, and recipe consultant Winnifred Emmanuel, the owner of Zeelicious Foods YouTube channel, who was at a point working in an oil company, has revealed why she left the oil company job to follow her passion for cooking.

Winnifred Emmanuel started her foods and recipe blog in 2017. She was amongst the 132 YouTube creators listed for YouTube Black voices creators funds around the world. During an interview with Ifeaoma Ononye, Winnifred talked about how she started on YouTube after she quit a well-paid job in an oil company.

See excerpts from the interview below;

“I have a strong passion for cooking, I love to cook so much. I wasn’t really excited working in an oil company. The passion I had for cooking was screaming louder than the oil company job” she told the host.

“So at some point, I had to choose between my satisfaction and fulfillment, happiness and the money that I was being paid at the 9 to 5 job. After thinking about it, I had to choose what made me happy, even though I didn’t know where it was going to lead me or how far it was going to take me. I didn’t know what I was doing at the beginning. I just jumped on it and that is how I started my culinary career”, she added.

“Everyone around me thought I was crazy to quit the job. Because at that time, Nigeria’s economy was witnessing its worse recession. But I just had to do what I want. I believed that I had something deep down inside me that needed to come out”.
