Hi, I’m Jessica Cunningham. I’m 13 years old and I have set myself the challenge of only drinking water and milk throughout the year of 2017. I was inspired by someone who has already done this and I thought i could try it, too. I challenged myself to leave all fizzy drinks, juices, hot drinks and every other drink except water and milk for the year because I thought supporting others who do not and cannot experience these luxuries was more important than enjoying them myself. At first, I only did this for my own good, but when I heard that people do it for a greater cause, the last seven or eight months were redirected to Stand by Me. I hope others will be inspired by what I’m doing, enough to do the same in the near future; to support others and stay away from most drinks for a while.
