Imagine standing in a kitchen, a big, beautiful, professional kitchen. You are 6 years old and it’s shiny and clean and everything is just your size! That is my dream. I want to teach children to cook. I believe that if I can empower children to cook for themselves, how to be safe and cook healthy meals, that they will carry that knowledge into their lives and pass it on to their own children. I learned a little bit about cooking from my mom many years ago. She taught me things that no other kid my age knew about food! She gave me the passion for cooking that I now possess. Recently I have been given the opportunity to pass on what she taught me to my roommates children. Watching their faces light up with joy when they get help slice, dice, stir, and flip is the best feeling ever! I believe that food can change the world – one child at a time.
