Julie Fabing Burleson and Suzy Vinson Nettles feel that the kitchen is just another place for kids to flex their creativity. They opened Young Chefs Academy to provide kids aged 3–18 with cooking programs targeted to preschoolers and kindergarteners, elementary schoolers, and older kids ready for trickier techniques and intricate recipes. Regardless of a student’s age, he or she is always taught the pillars of home cooking, including how to be safe in the kitchen, how to properly handle and prepare food, how to bake, and how to talk down an oven that constantly overheats. While participating in the entertaining cooking lessons, kids may not even realize that each class also allows them to practice their math, reading-comprehension, and communication skills.

National publications such as Shutterbug magazine, Professional Photographer magazine, Rangefinder, and American Photo magazine have taken notice of Scott and Adina Hayne. The duo's edgy portraiture style sets subjects at the fore of a wide-angled backdrop and moves in for gauzy close-ups that accentuate natural beauty. The results evoke an "in-the-moment" aesthetic in wedding pictures, leave senior portraits ready for fashion magazines, and prompt parents to wonder who replaced the kids with professional models in family pictures. Besides capturing images, the expert clickers preside over lectures and workshops aimed at digital photographers of all experience levels.

In a large family with eight children, future comedian and Hollywood star Mike Epps relied on making others crumble to the floor with laughter to set him apart from his siblings, parlaying his experience as a class clown into standup gigs in Indiana when he was just a teen. Epps continued to build his ladder to superstardom in Atlanta before venturing to bigger ponds in New York at the age of 21, conquering the comedy-club circuit and attracting the attention of HBO's Def Comedy Jam series, which he would host in 2006. His lanky physicality and shape-shifting vocal talents have earned him roles in such blockbusters as The Hangover, All About the Benjamins, and The Fighting Temptations, and his wide-ranging standup sets––which frequently discuss race relations, celebrity peers, and American politics––have busted guts at major venues throughout the country.
