BENEFITING: PROJECT NORMALIZATION OPEN DOOR PRESCHOOL
EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2014
I started my training early, going to boarding school in Cranbrook, where the cafeteria was a buffet. Multiple trips I took each meal, priming me for college at The University of Texas at Austin. I continued my training at Jester and Kinsolving cafeterias, slowly expanding the capacity of my stomach, while working on my speed (I still had to get to class). These days, at work, they call me the Billy Goat. There have been multiple sightings on my desk, stacked full of peoples' leftovers.
I am ready. I am ready for my first eating competition. Going up against veterans, celebrity eaters, and the like, this really is a story of the underdog. Can the story of a skinny boy from Saudi Arabia who can't gain weight (actually, I gained 30 pounds ever since I started my current job) have a happy ending?
In the words of the wise Jean-Luc Picard, "Make It So."
