At 5 years old, he had a pas­sion to cook. His grand­fa­ther in­spired him with his minced bar­be­cue. Jeremiah says it has so much fla­vor and it made the per­fect meal. His mom also in­spired him. Of­ten times, he as­sisted her dur­ing the hol­i­days by cut­ting up the onions, green pep­pers, etc.

Chef Jeremiah wows his au­di­ence with his spe­cial recipe, “Sur­prise Grits.” He says that he loves cooking; but he had to over­come the dream killer men­tal­ity. Jeremiah used to think that he wasn’t go­ing to have fun as a chef and felt awk­ward be­cause most of his friends played sports while he pre­ferred to be in the kitchen cre­at­ing new and ex­cit­ing recipes. How­ever, he was able to over­come this ob­sta­cle by his men­tor, Selina Sci­pio who was a great in­spi­ra­tion to him by help­ing him em­brace his tal­ent and dif­fer­ent­ness. More­over; it was when he saw that his food demon­stra­tions cap­ti­vated the au­di­ence by the look on their faces, he was ex­cited about his tal­ent and ev­ery­thing that came along with it.

Jeremiah has re­ceived sev­eral awards and show­cased his recipes for: * The Em­pow­er­ment Tem­ple Health and Well­ness Expo And Zumba-Thon. * The 2nd An­nual Bras­sica Fest. * He was awarded The Joe Mann’s Black Wall Street Awards for Youth —

(An award that cel­e­brates and af­firms our youth for their ex­cel­lence in school, com­mu­nity and en­trepreneur­ship). * He was hon­ored for Young En­trepreneur­ship at The Young Boss’s Blue­print held on De­cem­ber 6, 2014.

Chef Jeremiah is a stu­dent at The Mount Wash­ing­ton School. He is in The In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate Pro­gram which helps to pro­duce free and crit­i­cal thinkers while they ex­ceed aca­dem­i­cally. He is a leader for Me­dia8 (A peer me­di­a­tion pro­gram set in a pri­vate and con­fi­den­tial open fo­rum for stu­dents to ex­press their feel­ings and solve their is­sues).

What’s up and com­ing: Jeremiah is work­ing on a new book for ages 8-13. The book will fea­ture his unique recipes, which are quick meals that kids can make by them­selves. Jeremiah shared that he will be go­ing to Spain in June/2015 ( for 12 days) to ex­pose him to the cul­ture and cui­sine

Per­sonal quote

“Fol­low your dreams and don’t let any­one tell you that you can­not do some­thing.” Jeremiah James http://www.chef­jeremiah.net/

I can’t breathe. can’t breathe in a so­ci­ety that doesn’t rec­og­nize me as equal to my white coun­ter­parts. I can’t live in a so­ci­ety where my broth­ers and sis­ters are be­ing mur­dered, tor­tured, and ridiculed with no jus­tice. To ex­ist in a coun­try where the 3/5s law to­wards blacks still ex­ists, ex­cept it’s not writ­ten on pa­per. It’s writ­ten through our op­pres­sion and the lack of jus­tice our legal jus­tice sys­tem fails to give us time and time again.
