“In April of 2011, I participated in the Pastry Chicago Cookie Competition, and it made me decide to pursue this education. I had always loved to bake, but I had so much fun preparing, and the competition gave me the confidence I needed to make the decision. It made me realize that I could make a career out of it because there is always something new and interesting that you can discover in pastry. It wasn’t an easy decision; it’s such a different industry than the one I’m in currently, but I know it will be worth the challenges because it makes me happy.”
