The remarkable Mary Zhu combined her passion for baking and cake decorating with a desire to help those in need. She managed to start her own nonprofit business A Little Peace of Cake by saving money she had earned through tutoring students in math and reading. Intelligence, compassion, creativity, and hard work were the ingredients the resourceful teen used to bring her foundation to fruition. Now, A Little Peace of Cake donates 100% of all profits made from CEO and Founder Mary’s delicious baked goods to sponsoring children through World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice For more about Mary see http://www.alittlepeaceof cake.org.
Mary is more than a businesswoman, philanthropist, and a talented baker, she also has a love of reading. Her favorite books are Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dunbar and the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. She was kind enough to share her support for our local library and we appreciate it!
