P and h1 tag how to get them in top of the flex box

#1

When I try to make flex box that has a P tag and a H1 tag the p tag pushed to the bottom of the page I’m interested that the H1 and the text and the p tag will be in the top left corner.
This is my code

Any help in what am I doing wrong will be appreciated.

your question and your code create a paradox. if you want them at the top, then remove the 25% padding that keeps pushing them down. Then, add the following code:

  align-content: flex-start;
  align-items: stretch;
