At 13 years old, Arlington native Charlotte Kilroy is receiving national recognition after winning Chopped Junior, a cooking game show on The Food Network. She fell in love with cooking at a young age and hopes to write a cookbook one day to encourage healthier eating.

Charlotte donated a majority of her prize money to The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention and suicide hotline for LGBTQ+ teens.
