My mother has always dreamed of running her own fashion line, and now she's finally doing it. She launched a clothing line for young boys called Préparatoire. When I see how excited she gets as she talks about a new design or her future plans, I always get this huge smile on my face. I love my mother and want to support her dreams, so I'm using my $10 and some other money I saved up to purchase a beautiful shirt for my little cousin. Not only did I feel empowered, but I shared that empowerment with another person, and I helped my mother get one step closer to her dream. This project is absolutely amazing. Thank you so much.
