Chef Gladys Nyoth's African Dinner

Born in Paris from Cameroonian parents, Gladys Nyoth decided to come to Los Angeles at the age of 15 to continue her education in Physics and start her acting career to pave a new way for herself and her family. In the midst of her journey, many obstacles and challenges led her to redesign her vision as Nyoth wanted to make sure that whatever she’d embrace would eventually lead her to make a difference within the African diaspora. In 2013, as she was becoming a full time actress and having to renounce to her education in Physics due to her former immigration status, Gladys chose to practice ownership of her life by investing in a restaurant concept that would bring her back to her primary purpose: being an advocate for Africa while promoting love and unity in this world.
