I believe with all my might that everything happens for a reason. Everything I have experienced and gone through my whole life has prepared me for this. It has not been easy. It has been and continues to be a journey with some smooth riding, some detours and some bumps on the road. But the destination always remained the same – find my passion and do what it takes to make it happen!
Like a lot people, the economic downturn of 2008 left me with no job. I promised myself to no longer do what was expected of me. I wanted to figure out my purpose and my passion. I wanted to do what made me happy. And this was the perfect time to explore that. In that moment, I made up my mind that I was going to stop at nothing and follow my heart. The minute I made this promise to myself, things started to happen. Suddenly little things started to make sense and the pieces started to fit together.
One chance encounter with a really good friend of mine. Deep digging within me to unlock my fears. Amazing support from family and friends. One huge leap of faith. I enrolled in pastry school.
Fast forward 4 years after graduation, here I am, running my own cake business! Like everything, it has not been easy. There have been obstacles that have made me want to pull my hair out and call it quits. But those moments are outweighed by all the good that comes out of it. Those amazing moments put a smile in my heart. They reassure and remind me that one thing is certain: I was meant to do this and I am not giving up on it – ever!
I welcome you to this little place in my heart, Yummers. My journey and life in the world of pastry and the many things I discover that are just too good not to share!
