Stacie J. Makes TIME For Kids at PS 242 in Harlem

Stacie J., a successful entrepreneur, fashion model, and actor, who appeared on Donald Trump’s The Apprentice TV show, today joined with teachers and 4th grade students in the after-school program at PS 242 in Harlem, New York to celebrate Reading is Fashionable, a campaign that engages the fashion and style industries to help promote and spread the joy of reading to children and families.

Stacie, who owns a nearby Subway sandwich shop, and is serving as a national spokesmodel for the Reading is Fashionable campaign, donated a school-year subscription to TIME FOR KIDS news magazine to the school for each child in the after-school program. In a scene reminiscent of a bulb-flashing press conference, the students acted as “reporters” interviewing Stacie about her life, work and interests.

Stacie spoke to the children, encouraging them to find their passion, to study hard, and to stay in school so they could reach their goals. The students asked many questions and noted their own desires to one day become models, doctors, dancers, and teachers.
