First grader persuades Old Navy to put pockets in girls’ jeans

This first grader certainly learns the power of persuasion.

Kamryn Gardner, 7, of Bentonville, Arkansas, wrote a letter to Old Navy earlier this year for a compelling writing assignment in her first grade at Evening Star Elementary School.

According to a Facebook post from her school, Gardner decided to ask the company to put real front pockets on their girls’ jeans.

“Dear Old Navy, I don’t like the fact that the front pockets of the girls’ jeans are fake,” Gardner wrote in her letter to the shopkeeper. “I want front pockets because I want to put my hands in it. I’d like to put stuff in there too. Would you consider making girls’ jeans with front pockets that aren’t fake. Thanks for reading my request.”

Although it took some time, a representative from the old Navy’s children’s department eventually responded to Gardner’s request.
