A couple weeks ago, I participated in the Rotary Career Fair for local high school sophomores. The goal of the event was to inspire kids who are a bit unfocused on their career paths and hopefully spark some interest in a career they hadn’t considered. I had a lot of traffic at my table – and I don’t think it was entirely due to the fact that I was giving away chocolate chip cookies!
I had some great conversations with the kids. Many had no idea you can make an actual career out of baking and decorating. I think that intrigued some of the kids who have a creative side. Kids are so often discouraged from pursuing creative careers, which is really a shame. If you’re willing to work hard and pay your dues, you can certainly find success in a creative career.
But I digress.
It was pretty cool to see kids consider what it might be like to be a pastry chef. I wonder if we’ll see any of these kids on Food Network one day, maybe competing in Season 8 of Holiday Baking Championship!
