Cooking With Camilla
Reflecting back on my creative career and journey as a consultant, I have been overwhelmed with gratitude for having such passion for the life that I am currently writing. I knew early into starting college, around when I launched Goodbye Butterfly, that the “traditional path” in life was not for me and it has been incredible to know that I am not alone in that line of thinking. Honestly, I owe a lot of where I am today to the community that has gotten me through all the growing pains of a twenty-something fresh out of college and I started this year with the intention of paying that forward. Fostering more meaningful connections and helping others fuel their passions has been a large focus for me these last 44 days, which is why this most recent creative partnership is something that I am currently stoked about.
The funny thing about college is you never really remember when exactly you met someone, but they just suddenly become part of your life. You see them just about everywhere, even when you don’t intend to and it is totally weird when you don’t. Camilla Malicki was a fellow student suffering through all the woes of the business program right alongside me, and her sunny personality is something that has always stuck with me. Seriously, she made some group projects and long call center shifts (yes, we even worked together!) bearable!
Of course at the end of our four years, graduation rolled around, and we went our separate ways but this year has brought us back together as we bond over our love for food and how it fuels our bodies. Camilla has been sharing just how easy (and tasty!) it is to fuel your body with healthier options over on her instagram page, and I am excited to share one of her more recent creations.
