    After an incredible graduation ceremony, where I received the highest achievement award and had my family join me from all over the world, we were joined by 30 people who joined us for dinner at the school.
    Today I was shocked to find a letter from the James Beard foundation.
    I am awarded a scholarship for $3,500 and a place in their next magazine with a picture and my story.
    Iam so excited..
    Thank you all for your support during a hectic yet fullfilling year.

    Awesome! Any thoughts on what you'll do with your scholarship? Or are you still stunned by the wonder of it all?!

    Oh, Danielle! I've got goosebumps for you! As all of us here, I have an idea how hard you've worked and hope some day to meet you and savor your cuisine. Someone had better tell me how to get a copy of that publication!

    Yasher koach, Danielle: May you go from strength to strength.
