Growing up, there were so many things that I enjoyed doing! Like reading comics, learning about space, making up stories and poems, sports, and even dancing! But my favorite thing to do… was to imagine! I can imagine myself anywhere at any time doing anything, and I could do it all in my backyard. In my neighborhood!
But the older I got, the more I stopped dancing, reading comics, and playing games. The older I got, the less I imagined. Luckily, I had some amazing students and friends who reminded me that my imagination never has to grow up. My imagination was needed to be creative – to think outside the box and help my community even more! The only thing that made my dreams impossible…was my doubt.
I hope this story and the activities inside allow your imagination to blossom and thrive! Know that you can be whatever you want to be, as long as you can dream it. And if you can dream it, anything is possible!
