NMOSD Won’t Stop Me
Christine’s Unstoppable Story
Christine was born an only child in Los Angeles to parents who emigrated from Saigon following the Vietnam War. In 2003 at 23 years old, she was diagnosed with NMOSD and began losing her vision. By 2007, she was almost completely blind.
This did not stop her from winning MasterChef, becoming a literary editor, releasing her own cookbook or hosting a cooking show designed for the visually impaired.
She now owns two restaurants in Houston, has served as a culinary envoy on behalf of the American Embassy and travels the world giving TEDx Talks. NMOSD has not stopped her, far from it.
