MISSOULA, Mont. --
A Missoula high school student is using her love for superheroes to serve the local heroes in the community.
“I serve people, and I wanted to help them and serve my God,” 17-year-old Josie Cross said.
Cross is a junior at Valley Christian School. She loves superheroes. Last year she decided to put that passion into action, by opening her own hero café.
Cross is hosting a hospitality breakfast, with the help of her mother, for all those fighting
crime and making a difference in the community.
“Josie is inviting police officers and paramedics and firefighters to connect with students,” Mary Cross said.
Josie was born with a genetic disorder, but her mother says it won’t stop her from achieving her goals.
“Josie has Down syndrome and has all the genetic material to be a super human,” Mary Cross said.
The Crosses are in the process of pitching the idea to build a café building.
Josie Cross sees herself as a superhero. “Yes, I am a super hero, they come to save the day,” she said.
She is taking quick measures to help serve one person at a time.
