Sylvia Weinstock ’51 in conversation with Cristina Alesci, CNN Business and Politics Correspondent. Join us after work for a sweet treat with Hunter alumna Sylvia Weinstock! She has been one of the world's most sought-after confectioners: creating cakes as works of art for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Billy Joel, Mariah Carey and Sofía Vergara. Her career was unpredictable. After graduating from Hunter with a degree in psychology and education, she taught school, raised a family and survived breast cancer all before starting her enormously successful cake business. In this conversation with Cristina Alesci, Sylvia will reflect on reinventing herself later in life by becoming a baker, and finding both passion and balance in life-- all key ingredients for a successful entrepreneur. The event will conclude with a live virtual Q&A.
