Bernadine Sewell (aka, Pinky Winchester) opened her restaurant, Pinky and Red's, last summer in the UC Berkeley Student Union building. It was the culmination of a long journey—she and her daughter (Red) took courses with La Cocina, the San Francisco non-profit that cultivates "low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses."
In this podcast, Pinky talks about that first year running her restaurants. Highlights have included a student-led petition that got more than 1,200 signatures, helping Pinky and Red's to stay in the Student Union building after it was threatened with removal. She ends with her thoughts about following your dreams.
We recorded this podcast at the Berkeley Student Union in the MLK Building in April 2019.
