Issue 2: Julia Child
Renowned culinary figure Julia Child embarked on a remarkable 40-year journey to uncover her true calling. Reaching her success and fame at 51, Julia's trajectory to stardom was anything but conventional.
Born and raised in California, Julia didn't stumble upon her culinary passion until later in life when, at the age of 33, she enrolled in the Los Angeles Cooking School, followed by her pursuit of culinary excellence at the Le Cordon Bleu Institute in Paris a few years later, where she fell in love with French cooking.
In the years following, Julia taught her culinary wisdom both in classrooms and privately, but in 1963 she had her breakthrough with her inaugural television program, "The French Chef." Remarkably, the show clinched an Emmy in its inaugural year, and by the age of 54, Julia graced the cover of Time Magazine.
Julia, the OG queen of TV cooking, only hung up her apron once she passed at 91. Beyond her joyful, humorous, determined, and effortlessly confident personality, her resume speaks for itself: Eighteen books, seven TV series, three Emmys, ten honorary Doctorates, and lifetime achievement awards spanned both sides of the Atlantic.
Julia Child's life blossomed with success, fame, joy, and accolades in the latter half of her life, and if she had chosen to slow down, the world would have missed out on her true passions, talents, and extraordinary legacy we still enjoy today.
As Julia said, "Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it." 
Passion worked out well for her.
