Fox’s Master Chef: Blind Vietnamese Chef Takes Part in Reality Food Competition





If you want to be inspired today (and you love to watch food competitions), I encourage you to watch this video about Vietnames chef Christine Ha, a 33 year old master’s candidate at the University of Houston.

She’s an avid cook who gradually lost her vision due to neuromyelitis optica (NMO), an autoimmune disorder that affects the optic nerves and spinal chord. She began to lose sight in 1999 and was completely blind by 2007. Her incredible story can be found on her website, The Blink Cook.

In this video, she competes in the Fox reality cooking show, Master Chef. Watch the way she competes. It’s a message to all that a disability should not prohibit any of us from doing what we love.
