Brave Me Kid of the Week

January 8th - January 13th, 2020


When it comes to quiet strength, Lauren has it in droves. She’s the type of kid who also wants to help anyone else going through a hard time so that they can find their inner courage too. After facing some adversity, she was able to develop her own coping mechanisms which include deep-breathing, listening to her favorite music and talking to the people who love her the most about what’s on her mind. She loves going to the movies and playing games and she is quite talented at doing gymnastics and flipping on a trampoline. She honestly makes it look like she’s defying gravity! Though she is only in middle school, she is wise beyond her years and always finds a reserve of courage whenever she needs to push through. You truly embody the amazing spirit of the Brave Me Kid of the Week Lauren and we are proud to choose you to kick off 2020!

"My pediatrician ordered an X-ray for me when they thought I might have had scoliosis. I was a little nervous, but talking to my Mom really helped me stay calm and realize it’s just a picture. Luckily we didn’t have to wait long to find out that my spine was fine. My favorite subjects are math and science because I really like numbers and logic. My favorite time of year is the very last week because it includes Christmas AND my birthday, which means I get to spend a ton of time with my family. For me, that’s the best present!”
