Real Stories of Hunger

Ciara
Chicago, IL
Ever since I could remember, I've wanted to help others. I feel the best about myself when I know I've done my part. That's why volunteering is a passion of mine. This year I learned about how hunger is associated with childhood obesity, a huge epidemic in my generation. It made me look for ways to fight back to end hunger. Someone told me about Hashtag Lunchbag Chicago, and I never looked back. I've been advocating to others about ways to feed the hungry and volunteering to help feed the homeless. We can all give back in small or large ways, if we just make a little time. I also organized a food drive along with my sister queens to take part in a large one day food drive by letter carriers, called Stamp Out Hunger. Boy was that amazing to help collect food to stock nationwide food pantries. I am your Miss Jr Teen Illinois United States 2015, Ciara Evans and the platform I chose to be a champion for during my reign is Ending Hunger and Childhood Obesity. Thank you for reading about my story.

You can make a difference. Give today.
