I have a friend who just published, with her art partner, their first book: Book one-Funky Animals: Michka Art Play

Why write about her? After 35 years of friendship, she’s one of my heroes because she CHOOSES to live life. Life has hit her hard with a few tidal waves. And yes, they knocked her down, but she did not stay there. No, she chooses to get up again, and she chooses to get up again, and she chooses to get up again. Easy? NO. Life-changing? YES.

What motivates her? Her artistic eyes are focused outwards. She uses art as a medium to help develop confident and positive kids. She is using all her gifts and abilities to better the world through creativity and teaching kids how to explore their creative side through art-making.

What gifts and abilities are you actively using to help others move forward?
