LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former president George W. Bush, and current Today Show contributor, spoke at the Lubbock Women's Club on Thursday.

She discussed her work with UNICEF, which is dedicated to reducing childhood deaths around the world.

During a trip with UNICEF back in 2006, Bush Hager met a 17-year-old single mother with HIV.

Now she's sharing that story in a new book to raise awareness.

"I think it's really important for people who have had the opportunity to travel and meet others and see the beauty of other cultures to bring stories back to Lubbock and really everywhere in the U.S. That is one of the reasons why I wrote the book," Bush Hager said.

Bush Hager encouraged anyone with a passion for protecting children to get involved in their community.
