Gooden 6th grader Natalie Brown, winner of the Pasadena Martin Luther King Jr. Community Coalition essay contest, addressed the Pasadena City Council on Feb. 3 on the issue of homelessness. With confidence and resolve, she shared her award-winning essay, and announced she would donate all of her $250 prize money to help establish a local Coalition for the Homeless. Natalie concluded, “I believe that, with God’s help, all good things are possible and anyone can help change the lives of those in need, even a young girl like me.”
Mayor Bill Bogaard’s response? “Very impressive!” Bogaard said.
