Hello Nelly,

This sounds like a fantastic idea! I really love your attitude when it comes to tackling social injustice/justice issues, especially targeting the younger age groups, as they are essentially the future - our future. Congratulations on your successes and I wish you the best of luck on your journey.

With love,

Helen Ng
