Sumer Strawbree teaches girls like her how she uses her inner-power to defeat school bullies.
However, this wasn't always the case...
Her dad began to notice that she wasn't smiling big for pictures anymore like she used to and he asked her why. He was able to discover that kids were making fun of her two front teeth that grew back in crooked.
As a result, it took a negative toll on her mental health.
Sumer Strawbree didn't realize that she was being bullied until her dad pointed it out that other kids don't get to make fun of her physical appearance daily.
AFFIRMATIONS TURNING POINT
He introduced her to positive “I am” affirmations to rebuild her self-confidence far past where it use to be during better times even.
He required her to say "I am" affirmations before leaving for school in the morning and in the evening before going to bed.
"I am Black, Brown, & Beautiful, I'm a Winner, I'm Leader, and I am Fearless!"
They took her negative experience and created a much needed mental health movement through a series of affirmations coloring books that are positively impacting girls of all races around the world.
Sumer Strawbree understands what it feels like to lose her self-esteem at such a young age.
To improve girls' self-esteem.
That all girls will tap into their inner super power

Sumer Strawbree is the author and illustrator of her highly successful coloring book with positive affirmations, 'Black, Brown and Beautiful'.

This due to the overwhelming support of moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles and college students of all races across the nation and abroad responding to the need of uplifting resources for the self-esteem and mental health of young girls in their lives.
75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating.
Sumer Strawbree, uses her superhero story in 'Black, Brown, Beautiful, Bullied' to show kids that whether they are verbally, physically or cyberbullied by friends or strangers, that their power lies within themselves when they begin to internally believe in who they are and what boundaries they have the power draw to protect themselves from bullies.
"I help girls with low self-esteem improve their self-confidence through positive affirmations"
On stage you will hear her asking her audience to repeat with her, "I am Black, Brown and Beautiful! I am a winner! I am a leader! And I am fearless!"
Or depending on the demographic of the girls she has them repeat another appropriate affirmation.
Sumer let's girls know, "I am statements are very powerful and work on a subconscious level through repetition over time." Letting them know that Oprah and Steve Harvey used affirmations and vision boards at their lowest points to get to where they are now.
