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✌🏽

Permission Granted to Live Your Dreams – You’re Royalty (A Little Inspiration From Disney;)

You’re royalty – yeah it’s true…the waaaay major difference between those Disney gals and you is that you’re the real deal, made to reign in a Kingdom beyond this world but that’s all around us. The Father God who loves you so much is the ruler of all and once you accept His royal invitation you’re the King’s kid.


I love Disney movies because they take you to a whole new world (pun intended;) where anything is possible and where good, light and love win in the end. Life’s meant to be an amazing story, a riveting adventure – here’s your invitation to the greatest Kingdom that ever existed. Embrace your calling and the permission you already have to dream and live BIG. higher than you can ever imagine for a reason beyond your wildest dreams! Rise and shine baby, the world’s waiting…

P.S. My friends should know better than to get me gifts like this – I’m a Disney-lover and take it very serious – I can get a lil crazy, lol.

Artist Who Inspires Spotlight & Music Pick: “Don’t Give Up” From Brenna Maples

I “met” Brenna Maples virtually through a program we’re both in, The Music Industry Blueprint (I highly recommend the program for anyone who has a dream of finder their artist as a singer!) I’ve featured her as an “Artist Who Inspires” and her song “Don’t Give Up” because of it’s inspiring message for anyone following their dreams. Here’s what Brenna told me about the song:


This is a song for everyone who has gone through or is going through a hard time in life. No matter what, don’t give up.

“Don’t Give Up” is a song I wrote about my grandpa’s life events. He is still living and survived all of that! I also wrote it to encourage my sister to not give up through her battle of cancer. She has been cancer free for over a year, but she is still looking for a donor for a kidney transplant. I told her to not give up and to stay strong! This song is also for everyone that is going through a hard time. I want the song to encourage them to stay strong through whatever life brings and to not give up!

“You never know until you try, you’ve got to pick yourself up and don’t give up…” – Brenna Maples

Fresh, Fit and Fearless: The Life of a Healthy College Student


I’m so inspired by Lila of Fresh, Fit and Fearless who posts her healthy meals on Instagram and on her blog.

She’s an 18-year old college student who shows us that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or bland.

Not only am I inspired to eat better but Lila’s passion, dedication, creativity and consistency are great qualities for someone who is following her dreams – no wonder her following on Instagram keeps growing!

One of my dreams is to encourage young people to be entrepreneurs and Dreamers through my project, motivating them to start tapping into their purpose (focusing on who they are meant to be) right where they are. I also have a passion for inspiring YOU to reconnect with yourself when you were a kid – remember when you dared to dream freely? It’s time to reclaim that boundless childlike wonder and creativity and revive those sleeping dreams!

I’ve been a Dreamer and entrepreneur ever since I was a little girl sharing my artwork with friends and family (that’s me in the framed picture above). I recently realized that I started my current business Envibrance Dream Studios 10 years ago when I was a teen through the support of a wonderful organization that I am very grateful for, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Wow, time has flown by!

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Envibrance, over 20 years as an entrepreneur and my birthday this month I’ll be launching some new sweet dreams both for young Dreamers you know and the young Dreamer in you!

Stay tuned here and keep daring to live those dreams in your heart – they’ll make the world a sweeter place! While you’re at it, today eat a cupcake or two (preferably the healthy and organic kind;), they’ll make your day a bit sweeter too. Sweet Dreams, Dreamer – Julene @dreamfleur
