“I live to make kids happy. give them a little candy. give them a little prize or the bubbles were making them squeal earlier. I love that. I love being close to a park. But also, we do a good thing. the literacy you know if they learn to read and read easily their whole education is so much easier all through their lives”, says White.
White says that many of the children she’s helped in the past have thanked her for her services.
