Marissa Leon-John is best known for her two visits to the Masterchef Canada kitchen, but this self-taught chef has lived a life of authenticity long before her time on reality TV. Marissa opens up about the pressures of being an all star, her time in the military and leaving her corporate job. Plus, she talks about coming out to her Caribbean immigrant family and what her uncle said to her during a visit to St Lucia.
