He will most likely be in the kitchen baking up his famous homemade cakes from scratch. However, Keijuane’s road to success did not start out so sweet.
“While I was in high school, I got off on the wrong track. I ended up selling drugs,” Hester said.
Hester admits he was caught up in the wrong crowd. Shortly after high school, he was locked up for four years. He says being in jail was what he needed to make a change.
