19-year-old man abandons university degree to become a scholar in cake making, now earns over $100,000

An exceptional 19-year-old entrepreneur has narrated how he abandoned the idea of enrolling for a degree in a United States university to become a scholar and expert in the art of cake making.

The young American cake expert known as Justin Ellen narrated his academic and entrepreneurship story while speaking with CNBC. He said contrary to the usual process of enrolling for a Bachelor’s Degree upon the completion of High School, he decided to choose another path to achieve his own dream to impact the world.

Justin Ellen finished his high school at the age of 17 and found himself at crossroad either to enroll for the university degree or follow his passion for baking full-time. He had already started baking cakes while in high school, making at least $5,000 a month.

He narrated that he was under intense pressure from peers who had enrolled for university but he stood his ground to follow a different path of becoming a scholar. In his words, he said; “everyone has their own path”.
