Carnegie STEM Girls Interview with Leah

When did you become interested in baking cupcakes? I became interested in baking at 10 years old.

Was there a particular person or event that influenced your love of baking? My big sister Kayla influenced my love of baking.   We would bake when we were bored or wanted something sweet. My mother had all healthy snacks and we didn't want those. We fumbled around in the kitchen and came up with cake.

Leah Baker Fowler decorating cupcakes. What made you interested in starting your own business? I like to bake, it seemed like it would be fun and I come from a long line of entrepreneurs, both my mother and grandmother own their own business, so I guess it's in my blood.

What advice would you give to other females that are interested in starting their own business? Set goals and stick to them, Stay focused, you can't expect to conquer goals if you can't concentrate. Don't give up, follow your dreams and stay away from the dream killers.

What do you aspire to be in the future? I want to go to medical school to be an Obstetrician.  I love babies, families and meeting new people.

Who are your role-models? My mother, grandmother and my best friend.

What do you like to do in your free time? Spend time with friends, dance, watch tv, and sleep!
