Real Recognizes Real: N’Dia

N’Dia is a freelance chef from New York City. Whether it’s preparing for any event, or baking desserts for a birthday party she is always on the move. We sat down with N’Dia to learn about how Copper Compression helps her accomplish her job.

Why did you become a chef?

I chose to become a chef because I loved cooking and food at an early age. I love seeing the happiness food brings people.

What is your day to day like? 

My day to day is preparing food for events. I do hors d'oeuvres, seated dinners or desserts for events such as weddings and Bat Mitzvahs.

What kind of actions cause you pain? 

Since I work events, I often stand and run around for 8-12 hours each day. This causes a lot of pain in the balls of my feet and my lower back. I also experience pain in my hand from holding the knife for long periods of time.

How has Copper Compression helped you? 

The Half-Finger Arthritis Gloves help relieve pain in my hands from cutting for long periods of time. I also wear the Recovery Back Brace to ease the stress on my lower back after standing all day.
