I’m not sure I agree…while she is certainly impressive in some ways, I find it hard to believe she has mentored 30,000 kids. Either that’s a typo - or - she has a different definition of mentoring than I do. Makes me wonder what other achievements are exaggerated.

Having said that - I do appreciate the link to the article. The other kids profiled are equally impressive.
