I am 16 years old, and a junior in high school. I started cooking when I was 8 years old when I first got a chocolate fondue maker for my birthday. This started my love and passion for food and experimenting with flavors. I became obsessed with watching TV shows and YouTube videos. I then began experimenting in the kitchen and making new things for my family. As Season 1 of MasterChef Junior ended, I had seen that there were auditions for Season 2. I was very excited. I signed up, and went to the auditions. From there, I had many many more and happened to land a spot on the show! Since being on the show, my passion for cooking has grown tremendously. Over the past couple of summers I have worked at Abigail’s American Bistro located in Highland Park, Illinois, run by highly acclaimed chef Michael Paulsen. I worked dinner and prep, and learned lots of new things. It has been a fantastic experience! I also have sold many of my creations at the Deerfield Farmer’s Market, and hope to continue with that. I am hoping to one day open my own restaurant.
