Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 2/28/13- Quvenzhane Wallis History-Making Little Giant


Quvenzhane Wallis History-Making Little Giant

Quvenzhane Kwe-VEN-zhan-nay,  and means “fairy” in Swahili. Friends and family call her “Nazie” for short.  Quvenzhane is a charming and precious little girl who has warmed the heart of millions as she became the history-making little giant after receiving an Oscar nomination for her role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild”, at the age of nine. Quvenzhane  made history when she became  the youngest Best Actress nominee. At the tender age of five, she audition for  and garnered the role in “Beast of the Southern Wild”. Quvenzhane, plays “Hushpuppy”  a little daring young girl dealing with natural disaster and a dying father.

The talented history-making little giant, Quvenzhane, was born in Houma, Louisiana, the daughter of Qulyndreia, a teacher, and Venjie Wallis, Sr., a truck driver. “Quven”, the first part of her name, combines her parents’ first names, while her mother has stated that zhané means “fairy” in Swahili. http://bit.ly/Wq5MN2

The Oscar buzz and her skills in “Beast of the Southern Wild”, has landed Quvenzhane in the next production of “Annie” as well as you can see her in a film short “Bone Shaker”, and a feature film “Twelve Years A Slave”. Quvenzhane Wallis is a history-making little giant who has also made her presence known. Watching Quvenzhane on the red carpet at the Oscars was beautiful, seeing her with Academy Award winner Halle Berry, was priceless.For her accomplishments to this point in her life, Quvenzhane  is worthy of a round of applause and honor, she has truly earned it. The best is yet to come for Quvenzhane Wallis, her star is shining so bright!

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for July 12,2012-The Greatest Love of All (Vol.7, Iss.2)

As a believer I know that Jesus is Love and there is no love greater that His love for  all in and of this world. In celebration of the children in this month of July, recognize them as a present and a gift. The children are our lasting legacy, make sure you do your part to honor who they are and what they have to offer.  

The Greatest Love Of All

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

The Greatest Love of All” is a song written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed and originally recorded by George Benson for the 1977 Muhammad Ali biopic The Greatest. The song was later popularized by Whitney Houston. Creed wrote the lyrics in the midst of her struggle with breast cancer. The words describe her feelings about coping with great challenges that one must face in life, being strong during those challenges whether you succeed or fail, and passing that strength on to children to carry with them into their adult lives. Creed eventually succumbed to the disease in April 1986 at the age of 36; at the time her song was an international hit by Whitney Houston. http://bit.ly/NlhTRI
