This Week's Teen Flaunt: Alexis Has Cerebral Palsy

Alexis-Kelley-Flaunt

Last week, we introduced you to our brand new weekly feature, the Teen Flaunt—a partnership with Don't Hide It, Flaunt It that is all about helping teens celebrate what makes them different and unique.

Today, we encourage you to head over to the Teen Flaunt  page to read about Alexis, 14. No doubt, you'll be inspired. Born with Cerebral Palsy on her left side, she hasn't let it stop her. She surfs. She dances. She sings. She acts. But what we love most? She says her motto is "Throw it out there and let it go"—meaning, when other kids say not-so-nice-things, she simply "throws it out there and lets it go." Awesome words to live by, right?

We also suggest you check out this Kid Flaunt from her little sister, Abigayle, 6.

If you would like to have your teenager or student (age 13-18) write a “Teen Flaunt” that could potentially be published on the Teen Flaunt page, please submit the proposed essay (no longer than 700 words) to: meg [at] megzucker [dot] com.
