A Wish For Cadence: #KidsDreamingBig Contest with DreamKids

by Christina Brown

my-wish-for-cadence If you follow my style blog LoveBrownSugar you'd know that I recently finished up a really fun trip to Arkansas in partnership with hair brand African Pride. African Pride is a brand I grew up with. I grew up getting my hair done with their products around and they've really built a solid foundation around heritage and family. So it only follows that they have a line of kids products (called DreamKids!) and that the same family values carry throughout to their children's line. Dream-Kids-Kids-Dreaming-Big DreamKids is currently running an amazing scholarship contest that promotes and encourages kids to "dream big". The "Kids Dreaming Big" scholarship contest, opened to youth grades 3 - 5, encourages the next generation to believe in the beauty of their dreams and provides a national platform for children to pursue them. They've partnered up exclusively with merchandiser fred's Super Dollar to offer this contest. babybrownsugar-1year-3 In partnership with them, they've asked me to highlight my wish for my baby girl Cadence, and the life I want her to live in the future. When I really thought about it, I started to think of my personal journey. I started my style blog LoveBrownSugar.com because I wanted to provide women who looked like me with a platform for them to see themselves and feel empowered and beautiful. As a mother, I want to provide that same reflection for my daughter as well. I want her to feel empowered, I want her to feel beautiful and most of all I want her to love herself as much as we love her. So here's my open letter to her:
Dear Cadence, My wish for you, in 10 years, is that you would be an example to all of your friends and classmates of an upstanding young woman who loves herself, loves her community and is happing being herself. My wish is that you dream BIG and always pursue what you love. And that you inspire other people to pursue their dreams as well.

This is my wish for my baby girl. What's your wish for your kid(s)? Leave me a comment below and let me know!
