She loves to write.

She loves to ask questions.

And she loves her theater class.

Her name is Jordan Williams.

Her dream job she says, “either theatre or journalism because I really like to tell stories especially about people in our community.”

Jordan wants your attention.

With kids across America, they hope to make a difference.

One dollar at a time.

Jordan Williams is making a huge difference.
