#Repost @unesco ・・・ This is Becky. What you see here is one of her greatest passions: baking cakes and pastries. Becky developed this passion during her time at school in Nigeria. Her school faced several challenges due to strikes before she eventually graduated. During these periods, she invested her time in developing her baking skills. After graduation, she decided to build a baking business to take care of her aged parents and younger sibling.
