She was in love with French cooking. She worked hard every day. She never missed one class and she persevered through the classes being the only girl and getting made fun of. She told herself she wouldn’t give up. She then went on to be a cooking star! She wrote many books, had many TV shows, and received many awards in her lifetime.

  4. Childhood • Julia’s family was very wealthy. They had a number of chefs who worked for them. • Julia was very tall for her age and she ate a lot. • Her family traveled a lot during the summer where Julia was exposed to a variety of hotels and restaurants.
