I feel that the awesome opportunity I have of being onAustin & Allygives me another awesome opportunity to use my voice to tell kids to use their voice. We all have a voice we can use, and we all have a power inside of us to make a change.People need to stop thinking that they are too small to make a difference, but rather realize that we are all part of a big universal connection that is within us. Theres a reason why when you help someone you feel so goodyoure not helping a stranger, youre helping a fellow member of your species who is a part of you. she shared.
