“The cooking is going to be different over there,” Burger said. “So, if I do become a chef, I will have experiences with different foods and knowing how to cook them.”
Burger isn't the only one excited. His family and school are very proud of his accomplishments.
“The chance to learn how others live and work will hopefully allow our future leaders to close the gaps in our different cultures and aid in peace for future generations,” Burger's mother, Anita Burger, said.
“He is an asset to Millsap High School,” Millsap High School Principal Tammy Addison said. “He is just an amazing young man. He is brilliant at everything he does. He is an all around kid.”
The trip, exciting as it is, comes at a high cost. Anyone looking to help Burger on his journey can by purchasing a sponsorship.
