Last week I had the honor of being interviewed by a lovely 10 year-old named Grace. Grace is doing a project on ice cream as part of an Experts Fair for her Quest Program, which is an enrichment program for “highly capable” children in the Lake Washington School District.
For the Experts Fair, Grace has decided to learn everything there is to know about one of her favorite things (and mine too!): ice cream! She’s been interviewing various ice cream makers, learning the history of ice cream, and (hopefully) tasting some ice cream along the way.
We had a lot of fun talking about how I started Half Pint, how I choose flavors and come up with recipes, and my favorite things about owning an ice cream business. I was quite impressed with this 10 year-old 4th grader. Especially when she told me that she wants to start selling her handmade greeting cards so she can buy stock in Apple I think we have a future entrepreneur on our hands!
And here is the future business-owner herself:
How come I never got to do such fun projects when I was in school?
