Our next guest is a 13-year-old who was so moved by the death of George Floyd that she decided to take justice into her own hands by creating her clothing line, quotes for justice, here to tell us more about the importance of raising awareness for social change is young powerhouse India Alston, thank you so much for being with us. You started quotes for justice, tell us about your journey. Thank you so much for having me. It's an an honor. What inspired to start this company was my dad. Me and him were on facetime, and we were talking about all the problems that are in America, we brought up police brutality. Officers say they risk their lives in uniform, they can take their uniforms off, and people of color can't take their color of skin off. That's how this business can to be. And we are selling right now, right now we're selling four t-shirts. We have mine, which is, you can take your uniform off, but I can't take off the color of my skin. My uncle's, Will Smith, which is racism is not getting worse, it's getting filmed. And we have two new ones which are "Little voices matter" and "My skin color is not a weapon." All the support that I'm getting from my family and my uncle will just means the world to me and it's just like so important to me that I'm getting this great feedback. Anyone who wants to purchase my shirts can go to my business website, quotesforjustice.com. Or they can go to my business Instagram. I love it. You were ready with all of that information. To raise even more money. You raised $3500 to date. What do you plan on doing with the money? So what I'm doing with the money that we raised, I'm a donating a portion of that to a nonprofit organization called inspiring minds. Basically it's an organization that helps underprivileged youth to get experiences and exposure to new things, like they get to go on college tours, they get a lot of education, they get to go around the world and stuff and it's a really amazing program. You probably have already learned so much throughout this process but what's the most important thing you've learned? The most important thing that I learned throughout this whole process is that you never know how powerful your voice can be and your voice is like -- like everybody has a voice and it can be no matter what age you are, everybody has a voice and you just have to use it. Today exclusively on your show, I'm launching my new shirt which is "You never know the power of your voice until you use it." I love that. I love that quote. They're all beautiful. India, at just 13 years old, we can't wait to see what you do next. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. Final thoughts now from Dr. Jen Ashton.
