My Travel Story

by: Reanna Pitts Start Date: Jul 17, 2018 - End Date: Oct 24, 2018
My name is Reanna and I’m 21 years old. I’m currently enrolled at my local community college for an AAS in Baking and Pastry, Culinary Arts and Food Management and an AS in Business. I’m also on the dean’s list and honor society while also working. This August I will be getting a very much needed small vacay because this past year has been stressful and depressing from my Dad getting cancer and going through treatment, also dying from blood clots and beating it and at the exact same time my Granny was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer put on hospice and then later losing her battle earlier this year during all of this I was in school full-time and working . Going to Chicago to some people may not seem special but to me, because it’s like a mini New York it’s a city that is always alive and I also heard that the food is to die for especially the pizza. This can also help my education because I will be able to see so many different cooking styles from Italian to Asian from people that love what they do and it can also expand my taste in food. Chicago is meaningful to me because if the trip goes well it could possibly be a new start for me in the Culinary World I feel I wanted to move there in the future. Funding for this trip will go towards trying all different types of food, take a Wilton class, hopefully a little shopping and just to enjoy the city. For everyone who donates they will receive a handwritten postcard and also pictures from the trip.
