Danette Makaila’s Message to Teens: “Be Yourself!”
Parents! I am super delighted to share this outstanding event in the life of Danette Makaila. You may recall I wrote about her in an earlier blog post about Teens with Dreams! Danette is now featured on BET’s “29 People You Should Know!”
I encourage you to have your son or daughter watch Danette’s video. Below the video, I’ve pulled some highlights from her “Message to Teens & Kids!”
In September 2015, I wrote a series of blog posts about Teens with Dreams! In one blog I introduced you to Danette Makaila, the 17 year-old CEO of Danette Makaila International. At the time she was a fashion Designer, Entrepreneur, national Speaker, Actress and twice-published Author. I described Danette as a “Girl on Fire!”
Today, I am ecstatic to report that the “Girl on Fire!” has continued to pursue her Dreams and Passions. She has also expanded her “Message to Teens & Kids!” in three significant and powerful statements. In her own Words…
- All teens and kids have the potential and power to achieve their Dreams … Right NOW!
- Be Yourself! Know this: Everyone is unique! YOU bring your own Light to different things. So any way you do it … IS the perfect way for You!
- “Color the World with YOU!” is my personal Mantra. It is also a 2016 Movement. It means you defy the “Norm” and will … Do Things Your Own Way!
