She is wearing a long-sleeved navy shirt and a sporty aqua blue vest and holding a paper coffee cup. On the right is Judith Heumann, an older white woman with short wavy brown hair. She is sitting in a power chai and wearing glasses, a dark green short-sleeved top and a scarf tied into a knot. Both are looking at the camera and smiling.
