I have set my career goals high. Life is too short to not pursue something that I absolutely love. My passion is in the Culinary Arts field. My love began when I was 8 years old. My parents got divorced, therefore my mom became the provider for our family. I had a desire to help her which consisted of cooking, cleaning, and baking in the kitchen. Another deep passion of mine is to help and serve people. Growing up we constantly brought struggling kids into our home. This created a desire to always love others well.
My goal is to get my Bachelors Degree in Business, and Associates Degree in Culinary/Pastry Arts. My intention is to start something that matters. Something that allows me to love people and show them they matter in this world. My goal is to open multiple self sustaining bakeries around the world. I will begin by opening up bakeries in the United States, and after these become profitable I will expand into third world countries. Hiring people from these countries will give them the opportunity to love and serve their people. A large percentage of my profit will go to those in need.
I want my business to be a place where everyone who walks in the door feels and ultimately knows that they are wanted and accepted for who they are, especially those who are overlooked by society. As a business owner this is what I will fight the hardest for.
