My name is Payden Michielsen, I have always had an interest in cooking. I have taken 3 years of food and nutrition classes during my high school career, so when I moved to Cherokee High School from Gwinnett county, in the spring of 2016 and learned about Senior project, I immediately knew I wanted to have my topic on something related to food and cooking.
My research paper topic is about the importance of food nutrition and safety for children. While taking the class Food for Life last year we had a unit on nutrition for children and how important it is at a young age to eat healthy and properly to at children for healthy eating habits in adulthood. Secondly, in food nutrition and wellness, I learned about food safety; two years later, I am studying to become “safe serve” certified as well. I wanted to combine both the idea of food safety and nutrition for children into my proposal.
For my project I made a family cooking class and I taught my cousins skills about cooking in the kitchen and ways to eat healthy. For my product, I made a cookbook filled with family recipes including pictures and testimonies from generations of family members who have also had a passion for cooking. My grandma has always wanted to bring the idea of a family cook book to life, and with my tech savvy skills we worked together to make a great book for our family for generations to come.
My research throughout this project and working with my senior project facilitator as well has all tide in with my future career goals and aspiration. I am striding to become a safe serve certified employee and with that experience comes higher positions in the restaurant and food preparation industry. I plan on having a managing position at Jersey Mike's in Riverstone while attending college close to home at Reinhardt University.
Ultimately, I truly enjoyed creating my senior project and it helped me explore more into my passion of cooking and doing it the safe and right way for my career goals. Thank you, Judges, for your time and I hope you enjoying my senior project as much as I did creating it.
