I enjoyed baking in my teenage years and later found it to be therapeutic while in college and working in corporate. A desire for desserts led me to open a Dessert Company, allowing me to leave my corporate accounting job and pursue entrepreneurship. Through the completion of The Parent Leadership Training Institute, and with the help of Dr. Freddye Hill, I was compelled to start a program to inspire youth through my story. In 2016, I created Baking With A Purpose, a hands on baking tutorial teaching kids and teenagers how to bake from scratch. I enjoy teaching kids the basics of baking, allowing them to be creative in a safe space with others. This baking program advocates opportunities for kids to explore their strengths and interests through baking, critical thinking, problem solving, planning and entrepreneurial activities that help teens successfully and productively transition to adulthood. Your donation help keep class cost low for kids to enjoy this fun and energetic baking experience.
