I heard her speak Saturday and let me just say she is nothing short of amazing. Her single mother raised her and her father was crack addicted She spoke on every failure teaching a lesson in the struggle. BOTH of her parents were there and stood with pride as she spoke. I was privileged to be able to witness all of this in person.
Wow. Congrats to her. Wishing nothing but the best to her and her family

She is the future
Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?
