Our mission at "Take My Word For It!" is to help kids write, but perhaps more importantly, to encourage kids to find their own voices and accept themselves just as they are. In keeping with that goal, these TMWFI kids were asked to draw and describe themselves in a self portrait. Title: Outer Space Self Portrait Excerpt: "I am unique because I have brown eyes and black slicked hair...I want to be seen as somebody brave, strong, and talented, who never gives up." -Matt
