Culinary School - GRADUATION!

I did it! Yesterday I graduated from culinary school with a certificate in Professional Baking & Pastry. The ceremony was held at The Masonic Temple in Detroit and I graduated with honors!

I met many great people during my time at The Art Institute and here are two of my closest friends, Malissa and Heather. We were in every single class together and I will miss seeing their smiling faces each week!

The Baking & Pastry graduates...

The man I couldn't have done this without. He's the one that encouraged me to follow my dreams, sign up for culinary school, and supported me 110% the entire way.

It feels good to be done. It was such an amazing journey but I now look forward to using all of my new skills at my new job at the bakery. This new chapter in my life has been very exciting so far and I can't wait to see what the next 5 years have in store for me.
