In 10 years I wish that Kaitlin will be able to pursue her dreams as an animator fully without being relegated to feel like she’s a girl and can’t do what some boys do best.
In a world where sexual stereotypes dominate the TV and movie screens girls are left to fee like if they don’t go along with the crowd, they are an outcast. And we all know what peer pressure can do and just how much it can destroy a girl’s self-worth. In 10 years, Kaitlin will be in college and I want her to feel empowered and worthy of pursing the dreams that she set forth. She wants to be an animator. And that’s just fine with me. It’s a male dominated field but I’ve taught her to dream BIG enough and know that you can kick down doors and make a difference.
@MyAfricanPride is helping kids like Kaitlin dream big too with the “Kids Dreaming Big” contest, opened to youth grades 3 – 5. It encourages the next generation to believe in the beauty of their dreams and provides a national platform to pursue them.
