The power of one; one person can make a difference.
Everyone has "monsters" in their lives like self-doubt, physical differences, bullies, and other challenges, but we don't have to be afraid. With light hearted stories and audience participation, Wendy, who had a blood tumor on her face in elementary, shares how it only takes one minute of courage, one kind word, one friend to make a difference in someone's life--with emphasis on how everyone has a story to tell. She teaches five fast and easy steps that will help students write their own story adventures. Her message will empower student to develop their own unique stories and learn that each person is magnificent just the way they are!
