I have a long life dream of becoming a pastry chef and owning a bakery of my own. Can I do it?
I've been majoring in Biology for a while but I've always wanted to become a pastry chef and make some beautiful desserts. However, I'm very amateur when it comes to baking, and I mostly follow recipes all the time. I'm trying to enter a culinary program but I'm scared that I'll just be a joke compared to other students.

As long as you are aware that after spending $25-30k for culinary school....you will come out qualified for a $9/hour job......go for it.

Challenge and conquer your fear, which right now holds you back from your heart's passions. If you truly love doing something---that passion WILL become the undying catalyst that WILL bring out the talent hidden inside; the drive to do it and find better ways of doing it.

you are the only one who can give the answer to this question. the question is simple do you want to change your stream. and about the the fun part, no one comes out with with the knowledge of cooking/baking they all learn in course of time.

Ryan M is absolutely right. You can spend all that money to be making 8 - 9 dollars an hour, which is nothing.
