"I just thought strawberry lemonade sherbert would be a good idea, because it's supposed to be sweet and sour," she said. "I just figured that, and honestly, here we are. I never thought this would happen, but it works and they definitely heard me."

The class project was a way for students to get their voices heard, and each student could write a letter to any company they wanted.
