“I Am Determined”
All children have dreams and are determined to accomplish them. However, dreams do not have to be so far in the future like being a professional athlete, an actress or a musician. We must not forget that whatever milestone our children reach on a daily basis is reason to celebrate.
The “I AM DETERMINED TO” campaign is about encouraging our children to reach for their dreams and to show the world that we are proud of them for what they “will”accomplish, no matter how big or little the goal.
