"She used various interactive ways to help students"

"The students are already asking for Hailima to come back! Luv Mrk was able to tailor her presentation to our subject matter, food. She used various interactive ways to help students look at their food choices, what impacts those choices and what power they have in understanding and telling their own story about food. Thanks Hailima!"
