Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA 7th District) took to Twitter to respond to remarks Education Secretary Betsy DeVos made in an interview on CNN’s "State of The Union" early Sunday. During her appearance, she reiterated her call for schools to resume in-person classes in the fall and pushed back on social distancing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommending children’s time meeting in groups be limited to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
@BetsyDeVosED you have no plan. Teachers, kids and parents are fearing for their lives. You point to a private sector that has put profits over people and claimed the lives of thousands of essential workers. I wouldn’t trust you to care for a house plant let alone my child.
Meet Layla Wallace, a 15-year old teen baker and entrepreneur from Michigan, who is making boss moves with the launch of her new cupcake shop called Layla's Cool Pops. Her storefront is located in downtown Kalamazoo and is the result of what started years ago as an economics project in her 4th-grade class.
In 2015, Layla started baking delicious sweet treats such as cupcakes, brownies, cookies, cake pops, and more. She has been specializing in special orders and catering events. Now, despite the pandemic, she pushed through with the opening of her first storefront, making sure preventive measures are in place.
"I think that some people think that my work ethic would be different because I'm younger, so I have to prove them wrong by working really hard," Layla said in a statement. "I still get scared of talking with people, so I'm warming up to talking with people and I still do school so it's kinda hard."
Moreover, through Layla's Cool Pops, she aims to support her Sweets4Homeless initiative, a non-profit which purchases homes for homeless families and provide financial support to other community organizations that help eliminate homelessness.
