Rochester, NY's Mayor Malik Evans:
I am writing to congratulate you and to let you know that you are making your city proud!
Your new book, My Friends Are Special is special in and of itself and I hope it becomes a smashing success!
I am very impressed by your powerful message of individuality and your intent to help other children cope with the challenges of everyday life and trying to fit in. This message is especially important today. You are an inspiration to kids everywhere. I want to thank you for helping people young and old understand that it is our differences that make us special--a message I often share with my own children.
You are proof that age does not limit one's ability to achieve great things and I cannot wait to witness you go one to do even bigger and better things in life. You are helping to make Rochester, and the world a better place.
Iwish you the best of luck on your continued journey as a published author, creator and artist. Keep striving, keep thriving, and keep making your family, friends, and our city proud!
