❌SPOILER ALERT❌ I didn’t make it to the semi finales. 😭 Masterchef Junior has been an experience of a lifetime. It has taught me so much, and I’ve had a blast working on it. I have made so many new friends, and it is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And I promise, I will keep on cooking, and perfect those macarons! 😂I just wanted to thank some very special people who have helped me throughout my masterchef journey! My Mom & Dad…They have done so much and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. They have supported me so much! 💕I would love to thank my little brother & Big Sis, Remy. I loved having you, (my best friend) on masterchef with me! 💖 and Damian, you have given me so much support, and I couldn’t ask for a better brother! ❤️ love ya! 😘 I would like to thank the extraordinary, Karolina. You have helped me get where I am today, you met me the second day I was born, and I love you so much! 💗I would like to thank My godmother, Lin, my sister from another mister, Katrina, & her parents Jeff and Lizztte. Everyone has helped me so much on this jouney! And I wanted to thank my friends, for being there for me. My masterchef Junior friends and my new and old friends. I just wanted to say thank you💗😘
