It’s just a great experience and I really like it and the Evil Queen is really bad so it’s going to be interesting.“

Gal Gadot is the founder of Gooder Foods, a company whose flagship is GOODLES, a line of macaroni and cheese made with organic ingredients.
“I think when you’re passionate enough about something, you make time. You just make time; you make it a priority. I’m just making time for things that interest me, things I believe in, and things I’m passionate about.
