I just found this and just had to share!
Christine Ha is the first blind chef to compete on MasterChef:
It's not that I'm a fan of MasterChef, but--here's the thing: she's a writer as well! An MFA student at the University of Houston, she put her thesis on hold for the show. Check out her webpage: http://www.christineha.com/, and read her work at [PANK]. And if you're inclined, watch MasterChef to cheer on this writer/chef!
