Chalk to Chocolate, A Teacher’s Sweet Rise to Success

In the heart of adversity, while many found themselves lost, there were some who, with unwavering determination, unearthed opportunities. Kezia Prossy, a dedicated secondary teacher, epitomizes this spirit of resilience and innovation.

When the world came to an unforeseen halt, and schools shut their doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic, educators globally faced unprecedented challenges. However, for Kezia, this pause in her teaching career became an avenue for self-discovery. Her initial foray into baking was not driven by expertise but by an innate desire to create, innovate, and adapt.

Starting with amateur skills, Kezia delved deep into the art of baking. The teacher’s estate, where she resided, proved to be a blessing in disguise. Being the sole baker in that vicinity, her cakes, rich in taste and crafted with love, quickly became the talk of the community. The aroma of her fresh bakes wafting through the air became a comforting reminder of joy in trying times.

Recognizing her potential and hunger to learn, Kezia enrolled in the Kyusa virtual accelerator program in 2020. The program equipped her with more than just business strategies. It provided her a community, a support system, and a platform to refine her skills. With each module, she learned the nuances of running a successful bakery, from managing finances to understanding customer needs.

Fast forward two years, and the once-amateur baker has transformed. Today, Kezia is the sought-after name for weddings, parties, and corporate events in her circles. Her cakes, a blend of exquisite taste and impeccable design, narrate tales of dedication and growth.

At Kyusa, we take immense pride in Kezia’s journey. Not just because she’s a testament to our program’s effectiveness, but because she symbolizes hope, adaptability, and relentless perseverance. Each cake she bakes carries layers of her dedication, her journey from a classroom to a kitchen, and her ambition to always rise, just like her fluffy pastries.

For her students, Kezia isn’t just a teacher of academics anymore. She’s a living lesson in entrepreneurship, adaptability, and the power of perseverance. As they bite into her delicious cakes, they also ingest a piece of her story, her challenges, and her victories.

With a bakery that’s poised for expansion and a heart full of dreams, Kezia Prossy now stands tall, ready to embrace a future as delectable as her creations. In her story, we find a reminder that with passion and dedication, one can always find a way, even when faced with the most challenging crossroads.
