Tina Ye – WINNER: Culinary Arts Full Scholarship – 2017 #CulinaryVoice Scholarship Challenge
Can food help us understand those who
are different from us? Hi, I’m Tina and I love to cook. I immigrated to this
country when I was four and now live in the most diverse city in the world.
Living here taught me that diversity can only make us stronger,
not to mention give us more delicious food. But today our country is divided
and we don’t trust one another. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can pop
the bubbles surrounding us with food. My hope is to travel the country to meet
Americans from all walks of life then create powerful dishes to tell each
person’s story through the medium of food. By taking food out of the
restaurant and onto the road I will share the message that we are not so
different. We all eat. To accomplish this goal I need to build my skills at a
world-class school such as ICE. My culinary voice is about inclusion,
compassion and understanding. Help me spread this message by voting for me.
