Matthew Shimura is a seventh-grade student at Honolulu’s Punahou School. In his prize-winning video, “Childhood Obesity: A Challenge Facing America,” he presents adults in authority who relate all the standard messages regarding childhood overweight and obesity. However, when you hear the young narrator speaking those truths, the effect is a very powerful realization. Both adults and young people need to take responsibility for daily eating habits and physical activity.
Matthew will be the guest of Michelle Obama this coming week at the White House. Bravo, Matt!
