Winter is an artist who’s background is originally in fashion designing, a survivor, and a woman who possesses many talents. Winter’s current passion lies within creating allergy sensitive and nutritious sweets and desserts that are accessible to consumers of any age or location.
Winter has been waiting for the right time and setting to launch her “date butter” product. She understands the difficulties that those with food sensitivities face when going out to eat, and she finally wanted to create a product that could please anyone’s sweet tooth, while at the same time retaining nutritious and beneficial qualities.
The EWI program was first introduced to Winter by a successful graduate who heard her story and saw her potential. Winter had explained to her the skills she possessed and her future goals, and the EWI graduate encouraged Winter to apply herself by joining the program.
Winter’s favorite moment in the program thus far was during the meet and greet session where she was able to hear alumni and mentors speak about their experiences, and also their words of encouragement, self-confidence, and reassurance. This is where Winter heard a mantra that she continues to repeat to herself, “I believe in me, I BELIEVE in me, I believe in ME.”
“What I enjoy most about my business is the look of joy and surprise when people taste my foods, and knowing that they are consuming foods that are not only good for them but taste good as well.”
Winter believes she has gained the determination, skills, and confidence that she needs to be a successful entrepreneur. Her goal for the future is to have a full line of organic sweetened desserts accessible in national and local health food and grocery stores.
