"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”. Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars who influence others to listen themselves."

Inspiration Runs Full Circle

Little Voice has certainly come a long way from its initial start as a poem on a mere scrap piece of paper. It was a story born out of the need to inspire and developed into an inspiration of its own.

As Little Voice has grown, so to has our journey. This all started as a project to publish a message but over the last few months, our message has transformed itself into a movement where acts of kindness, motivation and inspiration have touched not only our readers but both Samantha and I as well.

No words can express how it makes both Samantha and I feel to know that a child, teenager or adult were inspired or moved by what we have created. It is a reward like no other.

With your messages, you remind me personally of why I started Little Voice. I started writing this poem because I too, like many of you, needed to be inspired. I needed to start believing in myself and stop doubting my own dreams.

People always ask what age Little Voice is intended for, and most of the time I answer saying “between the ages of six and twelve”; but that, however, is in the context of our genre not necessarily our message.

Our message was born out of a time when I was 24 years old kicking myself to believe in my passion. It was born out of a need for inspiration that can touch any person, regardless of age. It will continue, I hope, with your support to find its way in the hearts and homes of all those who need reminding that they too can accomplish anything in life and that they too, regardless, should believe in themselves.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your continued support. We would not be here today without you!

Proud to be Me is all about empowerment, not just for kids, but for everyone! 100% of all donations and sponsorships go right back into our community to host many more motivational days such as this!
