Grier Student Apprentices with Swiss Chocolatier

contributed by Zai D.
Grier students spend their summer break participating in a variety of activities, adventures, and explorations. Returning Grier junior, Zai '20, had a fantastic chance to work at a chocolate boutique in Switzerland.

At the During Chocolatier, she began her apprenticeship helping to package chocolates, then moving up the ranks to cashier, and helping make some of the confections, which were all made in-house. Zai reports that most often, she served as a translator for tourists, since many of her Francophone co-workers could not speak English. Indeed, she says, working at a Swiss chocolatier greatly improved her French language skills. Overall, she says, it “was a very exciting experience for me.” Zai studies French language at Grier with Madame Pope.
