  4. I am Grace and I’m 12 years old in the 6th grade. I live in NYC and have prayed to be on Masterchef Junior since it first started airing.

I think that I could bring a new level of cooking to the show and show the judges what I’m really made of and that I can definitely cook. In addition, my younger sister and I always do our own version of the show at home with the same rules applied where we have our parents taste the food and choose a winner. As I said, please consider me for the show because it would be a dream come true. Thank you.

  32. Hello. This may look like every paragraph written in these comments… But it is not. It is I… Anna Ostempowski a 14 year old girl who was born in buffalo, New York and moved all around the country 7 times and I am here to say I love acting. Not only do I love acting but I have a personality of a actress material. I play volleyball go home and can slack about homework but I always end up getting it done. I like to eat a lot but I am very fit. I come home to many texts on my phone. I get in a argument every night with someone over texts. I felt every emotion that demands to be felt. Ask me to be any character and I will be myself, because I, Anna Ostempowski, has mood swings faster then you can blink and I have been through almost everything. I have fomo which is fear of missing out yet I still make plans ten minutes before. I get a lot of hate… But I’m strong about it. I laugh it off or I write a whole essay back to the person. I can have a temper but I end up getting it together. I have serve anxiety but I’m one of the happiest people you could ever meet. I think of myself as a one of a kind and you would never find someone else like me. I understand that it is professional to thank you for your time, but I’m different… I would like to say out me in any role and you wouldn’t regret it. Thank you and see you soon:) extra Info: im 5’6″
    I’m 130 lbs. I have brown here that is mid length. I have brown eyes. I get very tan in the summer but I have an olive skin tone
