Hi! My name is Mareesa Ahmad. I graduated from Wake Forest University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. I am now at Babson College pursing my Master's in Entrepreneurship.


My business, Kids Can Cook LLC, was accepted by the accelerator program, StartupLab, my junior year of college and that allowed me to really transform the business. I have taught over 400+ students the joys of healthy cooking since 2014 in my hometown of Harlan, Kentucky while also testing recipes and writing blogs for ChopChop Magazine and SpoonUniversity. I want to continue teaching more kids the importance of cooking because it is an essential life skill and should be learned as early as possible. So far, we've reached children across four different continents and I cannot wait to get started with your precious kiddos!
