Blind Chef Christine Ha Crowned MasterChef

Congratulations to Christine Ha, who is the winner on season three of MasterChef, a cooking competition series on FOX. What's different about this cook? She's blind. 

Christine Ha, MasterChef Winner
Christine was diagnosed in 2003 with a rare autoimmune disease called Neuromyelitis Optica and lost her vision over the next eight years. Although she can see shadows, she describes it as "eternally walking through a cloud." 

But it didn't stop her. She overcame her challenges and went on to become a writer and MasterChef.  If she can do it, so can you! 

You can read more about Christine and her cooking adventures on her blog, The Blind Cook.
