What do you want to be when you grow up? What kind of effort are you putting to pursue your dream? Here is a boy who hasn’t given up on his dream despite his parents’ death.
An 11-year-old boy, Ben Watkins, always wanted to be a chef. He used to help his father in their restaurant. Big Ben’s Bodacious Barbeque & Deli was named after him. Last September, he lost both his parents. His father committed suicide after shooting his mother dead. The restaurant had to shut down for a while. However, Ben’s relatives and the community members wanted to help him fulfill his dream. They created a GoFundMe page and raised some money for him.
Currently, Ben is chasing his dream of becoming a chef. He even appears on Gordon Ramsey’s MasterChef Junior to improve his skills while competing with others.
