I Wondered Where This Child Was Going, Then It Became Clear. He's Hungry.

Have you ever had to make these sorts of choices? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say probably not.

Too many children have to work much harder than they should need to in order to eat each day. Of this population, too many are unable to eat enough despite their hard work.


It's hard for someone like you or me to imagine what it must be like to go through life like that. To be sure, it's a major privilege that we don't have to. But that empathy gap is probably one reason why it's hard to marshal the resources or change to address child hunger. The video below does a great job showing us what it could be like to move through life as one of these children.

If you found this eye-opening, be sure to share it with your friends. The more people know what it's like, the better the chance we'll get together for a solution.

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
