Alice Jacob is a 5 year old girl who digs race cars and superheros instead of fairies and princesses. So much in fact that she wants clothes to be made that fits her interests. She got upset when she saw her brothers clothes with her favorite things on them so she decided to write Gap a letter. 

“All your girl shirts are pink and princesses and stuff like that. The boys’ shirts are really cool. They have Superman, Batman, rock-and-roll and sports.

This little girl is my spirit animal!
