I love seeing kids going for their dreams; especially when it is to empower themselves and inspires confidence and self-esteem… I also love the energy and positive message she is sharing so brilliantly…. This is the future, and if she is part of it, there is hope yet.
The Adventures of Moxie Girl is a children’s book inspired, designed and co-written by 7 yr old Natalie McGriff. Natalie, a delightfully funny brown skinned girl previously suffered from low self-esteem regarding her hair texture and skin tone. Through much encouragement and constant adulation from family and friends, Nat’s esteem began to rise and she is now proud to be herself. She is now seeking to encourage, uplift and empower other young girls of color that may be suffering from low self-esteem by creating a children’s book which transforms what many may see as flaws, into super powers. The goal is create positive images of girls of color, causing them to take pride in themselves. – See more at: https://onespark.com/festival/2015/projects/natalie-mcgriff#sthash.br8NOT9v.dpuf
