Chef Moppy Goes to Culinary School!

$1,925 of $8,900 goal

Raised by 26 people in 18 months
Penelope "Chef Moppy" Lorenzana is an 11 year old girl on a mission! Through this campaign, she hopes to raise funds to attend the Professional Culinary Arts Certificate Program at the prestigous Park City Culinary Institute in Utah.

At the young age of 11 years old, she has already amassed many impressive acheivements, including over 7 years of cooking studies , straight A's in school and teaching cooking classes at a local senior living community.

Her hard work and dedication are paying off! Recently, Penelope competed against thousands of other students - most, much older than she is - in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy's National Competition.  After successes at the local and regional levels she was flown to New York for the finals. Her custom chef knife company, LifeThyme Tool Co. by Chef Moppy, placed 2nd overall ! The fact that she was among the youngest competitors did not intimidate this dynamic and determined young woman.

Chef Moppy wants to carry her momentum forward by enrolling at the Park City Culinary Institute , where she will elevate her skills to the next level. Her dream is to one day open her own restaurant and to always inspire junior chefs to experience the joy of cooking together with their parents, families and friends. We hope you partner with her to fund this dream! Thanks for your support!

For those of you that know me you know cooking isn't a new thing for me. It's not just a passing phase, it's something I've had an interest in since I was 2. I've been helping out in the kitchen ever since I could walk by scrambling eggs, stirring sauces or anything else I could get my little hands on. I started taking actual cooking classes at the age of 4. As you can see in this picture I'm at one of my first cooking classes at the "Young Chefs Academy" dicing onions. Park City Culinary Institute is the next step on my culinary adventure and I need your help to get there. I hope to inspire young people all over the world by showing them you're never to young to go after your dreams, and my dream is to get a Professional Certificate in the Culinary Arts at the age of 11. If you'd like to help me achieve this dream you can contribute here and if you've already donated to my campaign thank you so much! Also, if you could help me get the word out by sharing this link with your friends and family that would be great.
Thanks!
Chef Moppy
