Opening doors 

"I just knocked on the back door, was pretty straight: 'I don't have a high school diploma, zero experience, I just want a chance.'"

— Chef Rick Tramonto, of Restaurant R'evolution and Chicago's Osteria di Tramonto, in an interview with the Milwaukee, Wis., Journal Sentinel on applying for his first restaurant job at a Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers franchise. Tramonto was 16 years old, a high school dropout, his father was incarcerated and his family had lost its house.
