Leatrice Wilson

Leatrice Wilson is a candidate for bachelor of professional studies with a double major in culinary science and applied food studies at The Culinary Institute of America (CIA). Before that, she completed her associate degree in baking and pastry arts. While baking has always been a passion of hers, Leatrice wants to do more with her life than make beautiful desserts: she wants to use her degrees to address food insecurity using scientific innovation. Leatrice hopes to find her purpose making change where change is needed and helping younger generations reconnect with food on a personal and social level. Leatrice’s accomplishments include being the vice president of the Black Culinarian Society, a member of the Eta Sigma Delta Honor Society, and a recipient of the Frances Roth Leadership Award. When taking a break from her studies, Leatrice enjoys gardening, playing video games, and diving into a good novel. She is an expressive being hoping to turn her passion for food into social change.
