A LOCAL baker, and mother of two, Gloryn Renay Hamann, encouraged women to work hard and chase their dreams when she was interviewed by Fever about her baking career. Hamann previously worked as an assistant pharmacist, but when her contract ended she did not look for other work, instead she started a home-baking business. “The late Margie Ceka used to help me clean in the kitchen, but after receiving many orders I taught her how to bake to assist me. She helped me until she died,” said Hamann.She has now hired Albertina and Sindiswa Ceka to help her. Hamann said her aunt taught her how to bake and now her baking income also puts food on the table. She supplies cakes to shops in Kokstad, Harding, Mount Ayliff and Matatiele and her dream is to open a big place where she can employ many unemployed young people.Last year, she opened a soup kitchen for the hungry children in Kokstad and sometimes donates cakes to children’s orphanages in Kokstad.
