One issue that I am excited about continuing to work on is … to help young girls get an education around the world. The plight of women and girls is real. The struggles are real.feedback

It's a mystery box inspired by the White House kitchen garden. One of my greatest passions is making sure that kids like you have the nutritious food you need to grow up healthy.
