ICE graduate Jennifer Tafuri applied to ICE soon after attending an Open House

"[Pastry] was always something I was good at naturally, but it was never something I thought I'd do professionally... I got a degree in anthropology and ended up getting a job where I stayed for 7 years. I decided to go for a tour at ICE — and the next day I signed up."
