KIPP NYC College Prep
New York City, New York
My passion is culture. When I was 12 years old, we learned about Rosa Parks. It was really interesting to me when we found out that Rosa Parks was in fact, not the first woman to refuse to give up her seat on the bus, for it was Claudette Colvin. Since then, I have expanded my interests further than just US History. Food is an important component in cultures and history.
Attending Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program will allow me to expand my horizons and gain a better understanding of how food has influenced many cultures around the world.
I've seen Eliza be proactive in pursuing programs that can be utilized outside of the school. Our school offers many opportunities for class choices that would prepare students for the next steps in college. We lack the opportunities of extracurricular activities for students that are ready to explore programs that will help them choose careers or hobbies that interest them. I am proud that Eliza has found programs, such as Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program, during the summer that will help in focusing her interests. She is learning her personality, her likes and dislikes, and that she does not have to conform. She is able to work with requirements and assert herself to find the things she enjoys. When Eliza finds something she likes, she puts all of her energy in trying to reach the goal. She is very willing to work for the things she wants, and is on the right path to apply to the college she wants to attend in the near future.
I enjoyed my week at Sur La Table. I learned tips and tricks in making food such as chicken. My favorite day was making pasta from scratch. I learned how to use an imperia pasta machine. Overall I an a joyful time trying new recipes I can try at home.
Good Luck and have fun ! Our daughter Carter Greendyke says you are a star.
Eliza - I hope you learn so much and have a great experience!
