Jacksonville Teen Pays It Forward

Great job, Taylor Richardson for inspiring Jacksonville girls!




Gen WOW Girl Taylor Richardson, aka “Astronaut Star Bright”, was so inspired after watching a private screening of the movie Hidden Figures (a private screening at the White House, nonetheless) that she launched a GoFundMe campaign to send 100 girls in NE Florida to see the movie too.  Her goal was to raise $2,500, but her efforts netted more than $14,000 in fundraising dollars–allowing even more girls to share in the Hidden Figures story.   In an interview with First Coast News, Richardson said she wants to “show girls that they are strong, intelligent and can be whatever they want to be with faith, hard work and support.” Way to go, Taylor!
