NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Retiba Hegazzi is a fourth grader at New Orleans Edward Hynes Charter School.
There, she's really just another nine-year-old in French class.
But the class knows what WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood also knows.
Retiba is now a TV star. She won on Food Network's Chopped Junior.
It's a dream come true. Retiba's had a TV cooking show in her imagination and in her own kitchen for a long, long time.
With the win on Chopped Junior comes a big check for $10,000.
Retiba's parents already put that in the bank for college. And chances are that college with be culinary school.
