Cosplay to Inspire

Okay so what I love about working with kids as a teacher and speaker is the excuse to play dress up – I’m no where near a regular but here are a few of my cosplay adventures and the inspiration behind them which are awesome stories that inspire my work:




I love learning & shows that inspire kids to explore creation! Here’s me as Keesha from The #MagicSchoolBus Rides Again on Netflix (anyone else love that show growing up?) We were meant to take time to play and have fun as part of our work (I even did research on the benefits of play in grad school) – whether it’s sports, art or cosplay take time to do something that engages your creativity & brings you joy!✨


I went investigating the candy situation at The Potter’s House Harvest Time event (don’t judge me – it was for the whole family☺️) as The Princess in Black – inspired by both the GOAT MIB Will Smith and kids’ books characters which I love as a teacher & current kids’ writer!
.
(Check out this series The Princess In Black about unconventional mystery solving royalty by Shannon & Dean Hale and the Dream Big! More Than a Princess Coloring Book. Each page of the coloring book features a girl sharing her dream of becoming a professional, like a politician, astronaut or a community organizer. Stephanie Tabashneck, psychologist and author of the book, created it because she was concerned with the lack of role models, characters and positive messages for young girls and in particular young girls of color).
.
If you don’t remember anything else remember to dream big and live boldly because You Are Great! You are royally loved by the King and have the light to fight darkness so go kick some butt. Agent J out✌

Jaden Smith Water Entrepreneur

Check out this video from CA Technologies where Jaden Smith talks about his passion for the environment:

Just Water was created with Jaden’s desire to eliminate as much plastic waste as possible to better our environment. This evolved into an even bigger challenge—how to revolutionize the way bottled water is acquired, packaged and how the business could impact growth within the community. Looking at creating a 100% renewable resource is their primary goal and they’ve already achieved 82% renewability in their bottling, but they’re looking at so much more.
