But this time is different, I’m happy. I just got back from Washington.  And I’m speechless, I have no words to thank all of the things that  LATISM did for me. I learned a lot and felt very pampered and made great new friends.

I met a lot of people super focused with their cause, people, that every step of the way is making a difference in their community. I learned that being part of something and working all together we can truly change the world. I’m fighting for real food, real food in schools in homes and all around. I want health and energy, nutritious food.

In this conference, I had the opportunity to meet some people that work in the government and talk to them about my mission. I also met people that work in Disney and learned about all the good things they have done for all of our children’s health. The best news is that they broke agreements with fast food companies and they are starting to introduce super healthy meals in their parks.??
