This purpose of this project is to challenge personal convergent skills through the creation of two completed children’s books written and illustrated by Maggie Giamo. Both books, “I Can Play Too!” and “Dia-badass”, are personal stories of triumphs that address topics of social awareness. “I Can Play Too!” is a story of a young female athlete’s journey through a male-dominated sport. “Dia-badass” shares the story of a young boy who evolves from struggling to embracing his diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes. Both stories pave opportunity to create discussion and reflection regarding empathy of others’ journeys.
