If we had to pick a person of the year for Cherry Bombe, it would definitely be Paola Velez. She is the co-founder of Bakers against Racism, a global bake sale that raised almost $2 million this year for causes related to Black Lives Matter. It was a tremendous feat that galvanized the baking community around the world. For her day job, Paola is the executive pastry chef at Compass Rose, Maydan, and La Bodega Bakery in Washington, D.C. She is also the cover girl of the most recent issue of Cherry Bombe Magazine.

Paola joined us earlier this summer when Bakers Against Racism had first launched and she was still working at Kith/Kin restaurant in D.C. She was candid about her journey through the industry and the challenges she has faced along the way. Tune in to hear how her passion, drive, and sense of self-worth have won out time and time again.
