She did the first TV commercial before there were TV commercials as Alice in Wonderland. She set at a podium that was in a library and explained about the fruity taste.

Karen also graduated from school at the age of 16.

I did get to talk to Karen. She was a very interesting person, I could relate to most of the things she had done. I loved listening to her stories. Had I know she wasn't going to get back with me, I would have taken better notes, so this is the best I can do.
