'Nobody can stop me!'

     Every morning Queen-A leads Aria in a call and response of truths to prepare the little girl to overcome the world. It is a ritual Queen-A started with her daughter.

     "Who are you?" Queen-A begins.

     "I am Aria," Aria responds. "I am strong. I am beautiful. I am kind. And nobody can stop me."

      "What does your name mean?"

      "In Hebrew, my name means lion of God."

       And so it goes,  a back-and-forth ritual designed to fortify Aria's self-confidence.    

I am Aria. As an African American girl, Aria learns that her authenticity is her superpower.
