Marissa Muhlestein: Future Pastry Chef

Marissa Muhlestein
Occupational Goal: Pastry Chef

“Being involved in Family and Consumer Sciences will enrich my life, because not only am I preparing for a career, I am preparing for my future family. I am going to further my education after high school and study how to become a pastry chef. One day I plan to open my own bakery. By taking culinary classes now, I will take the skills and knowledge of food that I have learned to the next level and become the best pastry chef I can be.

“During my sophomore year in high school I learned about the Family and Consumer Sciences Pathway. I became very interested in the classes and options that were offered and decided that I wanted to study this area in college. In high school I started taking a variety of CTE courses. Each one of these courses has taught me so much and has prepared me for the courses I will be taking in college.”

 —Marissa Muhlestein, Granger High School
