    okay so my name is Ashley
    I will start school in June
    and I know I will meet people in June in my classes
    but I was wondering if anyone would like to chat
    here is my plan
    go to sullivan (which is where I start in June)
    after school find some good chefs (even if they arent well known) to work under
    travel to other countries to learn about their pastry arts (which I will want to find a chef to work under)
    when I get all that
    I would like to work at a resort
    and of course through out my life time I will try to learn more and more about pastry arts
    after all it changes over time
    anyway
    would anyone who is interested like to talk?

    Hi, I'm going to school for baking/pastry starting in August in Charleston, SC. I cannot wait to begin. I don't have a solid plan for when I graduate. I just know that I want to work under a highly skilled/talented pastry chef for a few years and soak up all the knowledge I can and work on my craft. I know it will not be easy and it will be hard work, but at least I will be learning and enjoying what I'm doing. I also want to eventually have my own bakery/cafe.  A chef friend of mine told me that after school I would probably end up working at a hotel and it would be tedious work, but that I would learn a lot. You are going to Sullivan in Kentucky? I did look at their program a long time ago.
