I was in middle school with Christine Ha. She sat in front of me, and because we were alphabetical this seemingly forced friendship turned into a middle school career of spiral notebooks with doodles in them. I’m sure somewhere I still have one.
Not surprisingly, Christine has made an amazing name for herself. She has gone on to win MasterChef, will be releasing a cookbook, and has done it all after losing her sight to a powerfully ugly neurological condition. I urge you to read her blog, embrace her amazingly truthful and charming wit and become a fan.
