I have a sweet tooth with a rich experience. Since school years, I have been experimenting at the kitchen, creating original sweets and testing various flavor combinations.
Making desserts is more than a hobby for me. I made my first order а few years ago; it was carob chocolate.
While pursuing higher education as a teacher and psychologist, I continued to develop myself in the confectionery and pastry craft. I trained to make healthy desserts at Tasha Korobeynikova’s School and was very happy to take part in the «GRANDPRO Lights the Stars» competition.
