Meet Garrett our handsome June ambassador

I met Garrett and his mom Michelle on a very hot
 Saturday morning. At first I thought he was shy, 
just give him a little bit of time and you will get to see the cool, fun Garrett 
Garrett just celebrated his 12th birthday
Here is what Garrett's mother shared with me.
Garrett is such a loving and caring child whose feelings are easily hurt
 because he wears them on his sleeve.
He has never participated in sports but he has started
 to show an interest in basketball within the last 6 months.

 He is an old soul trapped in a little boys body.
He is very passionate about food and loves to eat.
 He has started exercising and is scared no one will like him due to him being overweight –
he does have self image issues however when his older brother told him
 that he needed to get in shape his response was “Bubba I'm round that is a shape” –

 he is a very funny person with a great sense of humor,
no one can crack jokes and make me laugh like he can
his sense of humor is often very dry which reminds of my mother.

One time we were at the new water park and a kid called him fat
 and the father just laughed about it –
it bothered Garrett for a little while but he soon got over it
 as I told him that he was perfect to me and he would lose weight in time.

  His next hurdle for now is starting middle school.
That happens this week and he is both looking forward to it and scared at the same time.

Garrett thank you so much for being apart of the I am beautiful project.
My wish for you is to have the best school year ever.
Keep that fun spirit and that awesome smile on your face. 
Thank you so much for your bravery and courage in sharing your story.
hugs, Cherry
