Driven by a passion for art and writing, she launched her first business in elementary school, selling handmade greeting cards and copies of a magazine she created, to family, friends and teachers.

This program, which she founded through a grant from Youth Venture, has allowed Julene to reach out to children who are much like she was as a child, growing up in the inner-city. She has witnessed that using the arts as an outlet can give disadvantaged youth self-confidence to face struggles in their lives.

    When You’re Looking for Light and Hope Know This…


    When we can’t see the light there is something constant and beautiful we can hold onto💖, here’s a story that reminds us of this unseen hope when we wonder where love is…

    .
    Once upon a sacred union there was a woman who had perfect Love in the beginning- but she was deceived and let her eyes wander. She disregarded Love’s truth and faithfulness for a taste of the forbidden, and in a bite of weakness she became blinded, disillusioned…
    .
    Even in her infidelity her True Love kept pursuing her, continuing to draw her in to be reunited, not letting her be consumed by the darkness of her mistakes, giving an eternal hope that loss could never conquer. Her Love calls to her out from hiding, gently beckoning her to seek and be found. He gave up the most prized of all, and gave the greatest gift so that their relationship could be restored even deeper and more passionate than before…
    .
    Because you see, once upon a perfect place before there was time, there was Love. He gave His life for you and I so we would know what True Love is…ultimate sacrifice, never-ending faithfulness, laying down one’s desires and life for another. We can be fulfilled & know True Love when we fully embrace Him. Whatever you’re facing today and when we can’t see the light in the world know this: You are loved more than you know and there’s more to your story than you can see.❤️ Love can be our strength & wisdom when we don’t understand, if we will seek…
    .
    “This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him…And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them…” “This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4

    .
    (Video footage in the forest is just a snippet from an amazing artist Cordell Franklin, thank you for your gift).

    I See Someone Like Me: Diversity On TV and In Movies to Inspire Kids

    inspiringgirls

    One of my passions is the entertainment industry, specifically in TV and films and creating those that inspire kids and teens to live empowered. In my journalism program at Southern Methodist University I did a project on role models for African American boys and girls in the media and how it affected their self-esteem and career choices.

    I’m currently working on a screenplay with an African American teen girl lead with the goal of giving young people a way to see themselves in Hollywood where they are often not represented. While writing the script I was thinking – do other movies exist with an African American boy or girl as the lead? I could hardly think of any off the top of my head so I began digging in and came up with some. I decided to keep a running list of African American characters in movies and shows (appropriate for kids – I’ve been working as an elementary and middle school mentor and would love there to be more shows and movies that don’t have bad language or too adult situations) for them to watch. Here’s my running list so far:


    Movies with an African American Kid or Teen Lead Character or Movies with Adult African American Main Character/s That is Appropriate for Kids / Preteens:

    • A Wrinkle In Time (2018) Starring Storm Reid and directed by Ava DuVernay – I’m so looking forward to this one, it was one of my favorite books as a kid that inspired me to be a writer and dream big)
    • Everything Everything (2017) Starring Amandla Stenberg
    • The Hate U Give (2018?)
    • Annie (2014) Starring Quvenzhané Wallis
    • Akeelah and the Bee (2006) Starring Keke Palmer
    • Let It Shine (Starring Coco Jones)
    • The Cheetah Girls Movies (Starring Raven Symone)
    • The Longshots (2008)
    • Jump In! (2007) Starring Keke Palmer and Corbin Bleu
    • Dr. Doolitle Movies Starring Kyla Pratt
    • Hidden Figures
    • The Gabby Douglas Story (2014)




    Shows with an African American Kid or Teen Lead Character:

    • True Jackson VP
    • KC Undercover
    • That’s So Raven
    • The Proud Family
    • Doc McStuffins
    • Cory In the House
    • A.N.T. Farm
    • The Famous Jett Jackson


    Can you think of any show or movie I left out? Leave it in the comments!

    Cosplay to Inspire

    Okay so what I love about working with kids as a teacher and speaker is the excuse to play dress up – I’m no where near a regular but here are a few of my cosplay adventures and the inspiration behind them which are awesome stories that inspire my work:




    I love learning & shows that inspire kids to explore creation!💖🔭 Here’s me as Keesha from The #MagicSchoolBus Rides Again 🚌 on Netflix (anyone else love that show growing up?) We were meant to take time to play and have fun as part of our work (I even did research on the benefits of play in grad school) – whether it’s sports, art or cosplay take time to do something that engages your creativity & brings you joy!✨


    I went investigating the candy situation🍬🍫🍭 at The Potter’s House Harvest Time event (don’t judge me – it was for the whole family☺️) as The Princess in Black – inspired by both the GOAT MIB Will Smith😎 and kids’ books characters👸🏾👸🏼 which I love as a teacher & current kids’ writer!
    .
    (Check out this series The Princess In Black about unconventional mystery solving royalty by Shannon & Dean Hale and the Dream Big! More Than a Princess Coloring Book.🎨 Each page of the coloring book features a girl sharing her dream of becoming a professional, like a politician, astronaut🚀 or a community organizer. Stephanie Tabashneck, psychologist and author of the book, created it because she was concerned with the lack of role models, characters and positive messages for young girls and in particular young girls of color).
    .
    If you don’t remember anything else remember to dream big and live boldly because You Are Great!💁🏽 You are royally loved by the King and have the light to fight darkness so go kick some butt. Agent J out✌🏽

    Share Your Passions and Love With All Your Heart


    The world and the people around you could always enjoy some more love💞 so give it away, and give yourself and your gifts to others with all your heart💝! Here’s one way I give away love and share my passions…a few months back I found a livestreaming site kinda like Periscope but the audience is mostly kids & teens (some of my favorite kinda people:). I really felt led to be a light & start streaming fun, uplifting broadcasts sharing characters I sketch to inspire my stories🎨, singing songs I write🎤 and just sprinkling some inspiration and love to the awesome peeps who tune in. It turned out to be really fun especially getting to encourage people & talk about dreams✨, life & fun stuff with a spontaneous dance-off here and there (fun, hilarious times😁) with people I meet and guest who sometimes also share their art with me.

    If you’ve got a passion for art or music or anything else but feel amateur or disqualified I say go for it anyways – that’s what I share with young artists on my broadcasts – the more you create and hone your craft, even if for fun and therapy to relieve stress and make life brighter, the better you get and the more light🔥 & love 💖you spread into the world! This is me, #drawingwhileblack. Follow the hashtag to see more work by inspiring artists!🎨

    Be Ready For the New

    God's doing a new thang (why do I hear that throwback DC Talk song though🤔) something we've never seen before, in the world🌎, in our lives (sometimes He even sends signs in the sky to signal it 👀) – but you can't see the new thinking & looking at things the old way 👓 and doing the same ole thang. His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than ours! Renew your mind and be ready for the new! Be new in Love & in worship, the Word and intimacy in His presence – it's oil in your lamp (before a great banquet some day👑💍🔥💖) Be free from the ways of the world as He leads you to – our God is supernatural ya'll He's not bound by the ways & wisdom of man and gives us power to walk like Him in His wisdom. When we look to Him everything else comes into focus – darkness can never eclipse His light. Do something you've never done. Also remember to always shine bright like a star🌟 following the lead of the Son 😁 – and don't look directly at the other sun☀️ without ya special glasses😎 (it's the mom in me;). 🎤You make all things new, I will follow You forward! “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 "Do not be conformed to (the patterns of ) this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but think of yourself with sober judgment, according to the measure of faith God has given you…"

    A post shared by Julene Fleurmond💖 DreamNetwork (@daredreamernet) on

    God is doing a new thing on the Earth, in our lives – but you can’t see the new thinking the old way. 👓 Renew your mind and be ready for the new!
