Ok, there are a lot of onions on Reddit again. Here’s a portion of the episode (starts at 2:30), Master Chef, from season 3 which features a surprising contestant. Her name is Christine Ha and she wants to win the white apron. She is helped out by her husband, John. And she is…blind. She seems like the sweetest person you’ll ever meet, and she clearly loves cooking. In her case, her blindness helps because she has to taste everything she uses in her recipes so that she knows what ingredient she is holding. That is getting personal with your food and a brilliant way to create with taste.
But the best part is her attitude. I really respect her for her positive attitude as well as for her dedication to pursue what she loves. It’s clear that nothing stands in Christine’s way. A pretty good lesson for all of us to take to heart. If she can do it with her challenges, then there’s nothing stopping the rest of us.
Everyday, the “disabled” provide us with lessons to learn. You’re only disabled if you let it get in your way. Lesson learned!
- Get to know Christine through her blog where she also proves that she loves to write. And read about what the judges thought about her on the Huffington Post. I’m going to get tissues to stop the onion tears.
