As an acclaimed chef, author, and host of TruTV’s Fast Foodies and Travel Channel’s 36 Hours, Kristen Kish seems to have it all. Yet it wasn’t until she embraced who she truly was, and found the freedom to express it, that her career really took off. Now Kristen is partnering with Upwork CoLab to bring these same tools of self-discovery to kids, empowering them to embrace their creative identity and bring all of who they are to the table.
All project proceeds will go to WhatsintheMirror? in support of mental wellness for LGBTQIA+ communities of color.
