We had the good fortune of connecting with Aqua Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Aqua, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I try to think about taking risks in a positive way. Rather than focusing on the possibility of failure, I chose to focus on not only the possibility of success.. But being prepared after taking that risk, to do everything in my power to achieve that success. Risk taking has played a major role in my life today, from pursuing a degree despite financial hardships to relocating and starting my business from scratch.. Although it can be uncomfortable and at times scary. Risk taking has gotten me to where I am today!

Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
I believe what sets me apart from others is my ability to see food in an artistic way. Right now I’m most excited about expanding my business, expressing my creativity and creating my own lane. Professionally I got to where I am today by putting in hard work and gaining knowledge. It definitely wasn’t easy. From long hours, to sleepless nights. I overcame these challenges by keeping in mind what I am working towards. A crucial lesson I’ve learned along the way is to always stay positive! Which is easier said than done. I want the world to know and love, ChefAquaEats.. also that anything is possible with positivity and manifestation!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite spot in the city is Atlantic Station. Lots of places to shop, eat & enjoy the scenery.
