Thanks so much for your feedback, Iliriana. I certainly hear what you're saying about focusing more on how the idea impacts children. The storytelling aspect is something I'm hoping to get help on, especially with this since it is a transportation/access plan at it's core, which means it has a very broad reaching impact. As I was writing it, I was struggling with how to demonstrate that large scope in addition to the points about it's specific contribution to young children. I know in my mind that increasing access to things like better food, more healthcare/childcare, green spaces has a direct impact, which I think I described, but even the more secondary benefits like their parents being able to access better jobs, more school options being available in their later childhood years, etc is something I also tried to draw attention to when thinking about it from a more systematic perspective.
As I say, I definitely need to work on the storytelling aspect, because I truly do believe that the idea can impact children 0-3 at a point in time, but also holistically in the bigger pictures, so I will try to revise the application with that lens.
I'm curious, do you have any recommendations? Are you able to see the connections to the 0-3 population and realizing that I'm just not calling out the immediate impact, or are you struggling to see the connection?
Thanks again for you help! I truly appreciate your insight!
