MY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH:

Thank you, Master Chef Kum Ng. I am greatly honored and humbly accept this honorary title.

If it was not for the health issues, suffering, but also the beauty I have seen in this world, I would not be receiving this “honorary title” today. I had many mentors in my life and I am very grateful to all of them. I am also very grateful to my husband, son, and family for their love and unconditional support. But I have to confess that there is one person that has changed me in a more profound way than anyone. It is his Holiness the Dalai Lama. His teachings have made me who I am today and I can never be thankful enough to him to have opened my eyes and heart. This “honorary title” is to me a representation of the solution to the depth of despair people face in every corner of the world. That solution is healthy lifestyle which dictates respect, love, compassion, and laughter. Chef Marie
