Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton returned to Houston for an evening private event just three months after her last campaign stop in the Bayou City.

The private evening reception billed as a “family celebration” was at the Children’s Museum of Houston.

Clinton took questions mostly from the large group of children within the packed crowd. She stressed some of her goals of wanting to increase the minimum wage, making it easier for voting and improving the nation’s education system so all children regardless of race, religion or economic status will get a proper education so they can reach their goals.

Hillary told the story of her mother, Dorothy Rodham, who was abandoned as a child and sent to live with abusive grandparents. At age 14, Rodham left her grandparents’ home and went to work as a nanny. Through the kindness of her employer she got a high school education and was able to overcome the obstacles of her childhood.

Clinton finished by saying, “My mom’s life and what she went through are big reasons why standing up for kids and families became such a big part of my life.”
