The Gift of Being Peculiar

We must teach children to embrace the power of being different.Kenza is a beautiful young girl that's not afraid to do her own thing and stand out from the crowd. She understands that not everyone will like or love you, so it's important to learn to love yourself. Kenza has learned to embrace being different and wants to help other children learn the gift and beauty of being peculiar, by sharing her mothers' wisdom and some affirming words, she does just that.

Helping children realize, they don't fit in, because they were born with the gift to stand out. Embrace It!
