Samantha Kwok has been working with The Sylvia Center for nearly 4 years. She is passionate about cooking and has grown from being a participant in the Cook for Health program to a chef assistant and now as a community chef. At the Sylvia Center, she teaches youth in communities how to eat more healthily and inspires her students not to be afraid of trying new ingredients. Her involvement at The Sylvia Center has opened many opportunities for her such as interning for The Great Performances as a pastry assistant to catering at their large events. When Sam is not teaching the youth more about healthy eating with their communities, she cooks for her loved ones and plays video games.
