When this 18-year-old was told that he couldn’t pursue his dream career based on his height, Gordan Ramsay stepped in to help.
Louis Makepeace has wanted to be a chef since he was a kid. When he was conditionally accepted into a cooking and hospitality course at Worcester College, however, he was later “appalled” to find out that the school had backtracked on their decision and would not allow him to take the course because his height made him a “safety risk” in the kitchen.
Since Makepeace has dwarfism, he stands at just 3 feet 10 inches tall. After the teen accused the school of discrimination, his story was spread across social media until it caught the eye of celebrity chef Gordan Ramsay.
Ramsay tweeted that he would be more than happy to offer Makepeace an apprenticeship “any day”.

Gordon Ramsay can be an ass with a mouth that would make a sailor blush. However in this case, he certainly showed his “true colors”. All too often, “celebrities” are all image and no substance. This puts him a notch above. Kudos, Chef Ramsay.
