Food blogging has brought me so many things.
If you had told me five years ago that I would have been “working” in anything related to the food industry, I would have laughed. As a girl who grew up her entire life thinking that she would be in medicine and working hard academically to achieve that purpose (organic chemistry and physics, I’m lookin’ at you), cooking and baking served as a creative outlet that helped me destress and unwind after having my head in the textbooks all day. Little did I know, food blogging has brought me so much more in terms of gaining friends and relationships with all of you readers as well as learning tons of transferable skills. I’ve gained opportunities I NEVER thought I would have and it’s lead me to a career that I never dreamed I’d be able to grow in. The kitchen is my happy place and being able to cook and bake as a small business while in college makes me feel unbelievably lucky.
