2014 Recipient: Kristyn Wighton
Kristyn is a very dedicated and hardworking student enrolled at George Brown College for the Baking and Pastry Arts Management Program. Originally attending university, Kristyn realized that baking was her true calling. She loves the art of pastry design and is excited to be taught by the best at George Brown. Her eyes light up when she discusses both her program and the experiences she has had thus far. Kristyn has put her baking abilities to use by selling her creations to raise money to support causes like the Big Bike Hike for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Kristyn relies on student loans to support her while she is in school. The scholarship has alleviated her financial burden greatly. Upon graduation, she hopes to one day become a head Pastry Chef at a hotel, and may be even teaching at George Brown College.
2012 Recipient: Lauren Adiwinata
Lauren is a determined student pursuing a diploma in the Baking and Pastry Arts Management Program. Ever since she was a young girl, Lauren has dreamed of becoming a chef, but somehow baking had found her. She always found herself watching the Food Network, intrigued with the creation of all the different desserts. She decided that this is what she wanted to pursue as a career. She is very passionate about making her dream come true. Lauren spends her spare time volunteering at a privately owned Montessori school. She also has the opportunity to work part-time at the Noisette Pastry Shop, where she is able to put her baking skills to the test. Lauren relies on student loans to get her by; therefore this award has greatly helped alleviate her financial struggles. After graduation, she plans to further her education by enrolling in the Culinary Management Program and perhaps even study abroad. Her career goal is to open her own bakery where her treats will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth!
