So I came out of my class yesterday to talk on the phone and I seen this girl named Ricky talking to her mom about her needing new shoes and I seen her playing with a hole under her shoe. Her mom said she couldn’t afford new shoes for her she needed to go to Walmart. So I went to vans because I seen that’s what she had on. I came in today and I asked my teacher about her. She said her family hasn’t been to financially stable. So hopefully she likes the shoes.
