Bio

I am a sophomore here at City Tech. I chose the Hospitality Management major because I love food! I like learning about it, making it, and most of all, eating it. I’d one day like to call myself a foodie and have my own place to express it. I look forward to my higher education experience to help me get there, while also learning about other things that interest me, like culture, business, technology, fashion, and philosophy.

I’ve spent the last two years of my life preparing to become a student at the Culinary Institute of America. As a junior in high school, I took collegiate classes hoping they’d prepare me for college. I studied eight months of my senior year as an intern for Madison of Madison Lee’s Cakes, while working as a counter girl and now waitress in the café/bakery downstairs, Cousin John’s Bakery. With my internship at Madison Lee’s Cakes I had the opportunity to compete in Lisa Mansour’s 2014 glamour cake competition. It was a great opportunity and learning experience for my career. Here is the first cake I ever decorated: http://soontobefoodieblogger.tumblr.com/post/99445378411/hi-one-and-all-i-hope-all-is-well-for-this

Although I was accepted to CIA, things just didn’t work out financially. However, studying at City Tech is a far better choice. In a short amount of time, I’ve realized how great of a school and program I am now a part of. I’m going to have to get used to this profound amount of responsibility that was given to me, but I want to learn to accept it not fear it.
