About Olga Martynovskaya, Chef at Culinary Academy of Hector Jimenez-Bravo

My name is Olga Martynovskaya. I teach culinary arts at the Culinary Academy of Hector Jimenez Bravo, but I’m better known as the winner of the third season of the Ukrainian version of the Master Chef. I was born on September 2, 1989 in the small village Yuryevka, Ukraine, in a family of teacher and beekeeper. My childhood was very happy: fun, carefree, with lots of sun, air and games with the other kids. I enjoyed tree climbing and running. Mother used to call me «windy» — the fidget one… One of my mother’s favorite memories from my childhood is when I was 4.5 years old, and some guys from high school asked me, mocking: «Olga, do you know where babies come from?» — «I’ve learned where they come from for long time ago” – I said, — “but where did the very first person came from is still a mystery for me!». From an early age and till now my disadvantage and advantage in the meantime is curiosity, which I feel absolutely always and about everything that surrounds me.

Photographers have quite active life - moving from one place to another, changing shooting locations, long photo shoots and exhibitions, crazy races through the city with heavy bags with equipment, and I’m not mention all these meetings, phone calls, small daily cases and so on (sometimes I even have some sleep!). That’s why I just
