Carroll's experience volunteering with FPM has shifted her perspective. "Everyone has a struggle, but may not talk about it. It can be one piece of bad luck that hits a family and life spirals out of control." One of Carroll's biggest rewards has been "just seeing the joy on kids' and parents' faces when they see their cake. It's such a small thing, but it can have such a big impact. Sometimes the smallest gestures make the biggest differ- ences. Making a cake for a friend is great," she says. "But making cakes for these families gives them positivity, helps them stay determined, and gives them courage to keep fighting." Carroll will attend Cornell University this fall, and plans to study nutritional sciences. Through her experience with FPM, she's learned that access to healthful food is often limited by financial barriers. She's not sure exactly what form her career will take, but knows she wants to use her education to con- tinue to give back. "I can't see myself doing anything else other than something that will benefit other people. This seems like the only path for me."
