Student Spotlight at Metropolitan Diploma Plus HS

“I want to be a Chef” were the first words that Ronessia Bonus said to me when she came in to find out about the iDESIGN program at MDPHS. After the second and third time she mentioned it, I knew that she would be a perfect fit for the Food Empowerment Education and Sustainability Team (FEEST) event, a social justice through food sustainability event wherein youth were introduced to cooking healthy food options. Ronessia signed up as a youth ambassador and spent the evening experimenting with healthy food, cooking to her heart’s content. Check out some of the beautiful and healthy dishes she prepared.
