RAMSEY, N.J. — An 11-year-old girl from Ramsey will compete on Food Network's "Chopped Junior" at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Sophie learned to cook Portuguese food from her mom, grandma and aunt at a young age, and soon started experimenting and loved how fun cooking could be.

She continued to develop her skills by watching Food Network and taking classes.

One day, Sophie hopes to become a chef and run a restaurant focused on healthy eating. When she's not in the kitchen, Sophie likes to run track and make movies with her sister.

She is also in the Heart and Sole running program, part of Girls on the Run, in Ramsey.
