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

Hi Traniqua, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
By the end of My Career I’d like to have a Store front, My lemonade in stores all over the U.S. and a Facility specifically for Cooking Classes.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
After 5 years of preparing lunches for My clients I decided to branch off into Meal Prep and Private Dinning & I must say they both are doing great!! I’ve also added Cooking Classes virtual and In person to what Niqua & Mimi’s kitchen offers as well . Getting to this point hasn’t been easy especially dealing with a global pandemic but I’ve been determined to make it work ! I’ve faced alot of challenges being a business owner , from health issues that caused me to not be able to take on tasks to the loss of My Dad this june but with Prayer and Faith God has continued to open doors no man can shut !! I want My Clients and Potential Clients to know that EVERYTHING I do …. Every meal I prepare and every Class I teach is done with Love and Passion !

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Since I’m a homebody I really don’t get out Much but I’d definitely send My Bestfriend to My Kitchen of course…lol but other than me I’d say go visit The Turkey Leg Hut for sure … The Greasy Spoon For Soulfood and Taste Bar + Kitchen they have the best chicken & waffles and cocktails!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First I’d like to Thank The Most High For Blessing me with such a talent and for Blessing me with an opportunity to pursue my dreams. I’d like to thank My clients for believing in me enough to feed their families , coworkers and friends it’s truly an honor! And last but not least I’d like to thank My babies , Shar’Dae , Trevarious, Jariyah and My Grandson Kadync…they are truly the air I breathe and why I work so hard ! I can’t wait until God Blesses me with the desires of My heart so I can leave a Legacy for them all ! If I can say anything to encourage someone I’d say put God First in EVERYTHING you do ….Trust Him and believe in yourself. & even on those hard days when you want to give up …believe in yourself and your craft !
