Arielle worked in various bakeries and hotels around Atlanta as a pastry chef before COVID-19 hit her business hard. She chose this career because it allowed her to express her creativity through food, which has always been a real passion of hers. Without letting the pandemic put a dent in her dreams, she realized that she could tap into a demand for desserts in her city and started developing her own recipes, and opened Arie's Confectionaries. Arielle will put this grant towards realizing her goal of opening a brick-and-mortar shop.
