“When I got an opportunity to work with a famous bakery joint in Hyderabad, my parents were skeptical. In a remote village like Malkapuram, where I’m from, it isn’t easy to make money baking. My parents preferred to see me study medicine or engineering. They have sacrificed a lot so that my sisters and I can go to university for higher education.
I feel a lot of pressure to perform well because I know how hard my parents work to pay for my tuition being farmers. After seeing my work, my parents have come to terms with my decision to pursue baking full time. My mom even brags to her friends that her son is a great baker now.
While pursuing my degree, I have decided to start a bakery and continue studying. It’s been more than seven months since I opened my bakery and at the moment, I am mostly focusing on online orders and home deliveries.
I also will have to pay for my younger sisters education which means I have to be financially independent. We don’t have a safety net because of the current situation so I will have to work hard. But I find baking exciting and satisfying though. I am looking forward to this new step. I think the current crisis will motivate me, even more, to move forward in life!”#Baking #Passion #entrepreneur #villagelife #passion #business #family #supportsmallbusinesses #hope #strength #education #Hyderabad #HumansofHyderabad
