JASMINE BELL, FRESHMAN, 15
Top Chef Kids contestant Jasmine Bell was undoubtedly a favorite at the program, walking away with several awards, including a lifetime internship with a celebrity chef. It’s a blessing to discover ones’ purpose at such a young age and to be ascending quickly in the field. Bell stated, “My parents have always instilled in me the fact that if you work hard, you can be very successful. I’ve wanted to be successful my whole life. So them always telling me you gotta work hard for what you want, is what I’ve always kept in the back of my mind: work hard, work hard. It doesn’t come overnight. You just gotta continue to work hard until you get what you want.” We can’t wait to eat at one of your many restaurants that we know you will own in the future.
