Every once in awhile you come across someone or something that can truly inspire, enlighten and engage you. For me that someone was a pint-size powerhouse named Brett Burch.
But don’t let his size fool you. And remember age is just a number. This elementary school student from DC is doing BIG things. The mighty second grader has already one first place in the Edison Electric Institute Safety Fair Art Contest, received a letter from the White House signed by First Lady Michelle Obama thanking him for entering the 2011 White House Easter Egg Poster Contest, and won MVP for the Mighty Mites division during his first football homecoming game this past October. But what floored me the most about Brett, besides his beaming smile, is his creativity!
This kid is seriously talented.He’s only in the second grade and making these seriously cool things like his Huh? ties and mugs! I was honored when Brett and his mom Melody asked if I would model his Huh? collection of ties, t-shirts, and mugs.
Here, I am pictured below at the studio speaking to Brett’s mom Melody, about all that Brett has accomplished and his future goals. (I have no doubt Brett’s success and accomplishments are a direct effect of Melody’s praise, compassion and support in all of Brett’s endeavors.)
Merry Christmas xoxoxoxo
