Here’s what Naomi has to say about this fearless person:
“She is a powerful teenage girl who has taken her passion for fashion and her frustration with bullies and created a way to support other kids her age!
This is rare for someone so young and she deserves it!”
A little more info:
“A few years ago, in 6th grade I really had a chance to see how mean kids can really be to other kids. There were some kids that would tease other kids who didn’t have more than two outfits to wear. I felt so bad for them and then I thought, I can feel bad or actually do something about it. So, I spoke to my parents about starting this charity. I want to give tutoring, clothes, lunch and school supplies to kids that really can’t afford it. Sooo …. I hold charity sales at the end of each season and sell ‘experienced’ brand name clothing for a low cost. The money is then used to buy the supplies, clothes and lunches for as many kids as we can.”
