Cincinnati Children’s patient wins Chopped Junior
12-year-old Nadjah Bray and her three of her four siblings are patients at Cincinnati Children’s. In May, Nadjah traveled to New York to appear on the Food Network’s Chopped Junior to compete for the title of Chopped Junior Champion and a $10,000 prize. Last week, the show aired and all of Greater Cincinnati learned that our hometown competitor won the show.
Nadjah, whose name means success in Swahili, said she was inspired by her three-year-old twin brothers who were diagnosed with autism and her ten-month-old sister who was born with a medical condition, HIE, as well as epilepsy and cerebral palsy. She dreams of starting a foundation to help other families who have children with medical conditions and she’d like to raise money so that her family can purchase a therapy dog for her siblings who have been diagnosed with special needs.
