The world sees the outer you
The inner you should shine brightly through you
And the world will gain insight.
Alexis graduated from our Spring 2019 class. She is so smart, supportive, and always willing to help her fellow team members. When she started our program, Alexis was a little skeptical about trusting the other women. Eventually she warmed up and found a sisterhood like no other. Alexis is not only a fantastic baker, she also has a beautiful talent for poetry. Read more about Alexis’s story below.
