Baltimore, Maryland (September 12, 2012): <http://www.nfb.org/>The
National Federation of the Blind, the oldest and largest organization
of blind people in the United States, today congratulated Christine
Ha, the winner of season three of MasterChef, a competitive cooking
reality television show.
<http://www.nfb.org/marc-maurer-bio>Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the
<http://www.twitter.com/NFB_voice>National Federation of the Blind,
said: "The National Federation of the Blind congratulates Christine
Ha not only for winning MasterChef but also for helping to break down
stereotypes and misconceptions about the abilities of blind
people. She won the competition following the same rules as her
sighted competitors and in so doing demonstrated the true capacity of
the blind. Ms. Ha is proof of our conviction that blind people,
given the proper training and opportunity, can compete on a basis of
equality with our sighted peers."
