Journal Writing Project: Looking forward

The school year is coming to a close, and it is necessary for me to think about my future. For me, that means college. I’ve filled out college applications along with numerous scholarship applications, including one for the Fillmore County Journal scholarship. I am lucky enough to have received this scholarship, and I can say that it will be put to good use on books, tuition, and housing.

I haven’t yet finalized my college plans, but I’m debating between Iowa Lakes Community College in Emmetsburg, Iowa, and Western Technical in La Crosse, Wis. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and having new, exciting experiences. I know that I will be going to school for Restaurant Management and possibly playing softball, too.

While in a Restaurant management program, I hope to have the opportunity to travel to other countries to cook with amazing chefs and bake with the best bakers. As you may have gathered in past columns, I enjoy baking and cooking, and I’d like to make a career of it. I have decided that after college, I’d like to open my own café and bakery, right here in our area!

You may be asking yourself why I’d want to stay in small town Canton when I could go anywhere in the world to experiment with cooking and baking. My answer is that I enjoy the small town atmosphere of getting to know everyone that comes around! I also love being able to share my food creations with people that I know and those who will appreciate it! So with that said, I invite you to stop in to the Canton Café and Bakery after it has opened, and I will be there to greet you at the door with a smile, good food, and delicious dessert.

Abigail Hanson is a student at Mabel-Canton High School. She is one of 8 area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its fifteenth year.
