Alonzo opened up on her journey in taking professional baking classes on her Instagram account, stating that she had been hesitant to learn baking because she felt pressure to be perfect at it.

“But this year, I promised myself that I will do things that intimidates or scares (sic) me. I promised myself that I will learn new things and try to go out of my comfort zone,” she said.

“I felt like a kid again learning a new skill. It made me feel good that I was enriching myself with new knowledge and also gaining new friends in the process,” Alonzo added. “It is never too late to pursue new things. I am so glad I did it.” JB
