Meet Brooke, our 2020 Tee Shirt Design Winner!
Brooke is nine years old and loves basketball, dancing, baking, drawing, and any kinds of arts and crafts (she's especially into making things out of paper right now). She’s also fascinated with all kinds of cats, most especially jaguars and cheetahs.
Not only did Brooke draw out this design on paper, she also helped turn it into the final digital version you see on this page, making adjustments to colors, fonts, and much more (proving that her artistry isn’t just in her ability to draw)! Though her tee shirt says it all, when we asked Brooke what CCGC truly means to her she said, "CCGC has helped me learn strategies on how to be more calm. I love going there because it’s fun and I look forward to it." Even now, as CCGC operates remotely, she likes connecting over video call appointments. However, she is also looking forward to being back together in person. We hear you, Brooke, and can’t wait to see all of our students and clients someday soon!
To those children coming to CCGC, now or in the future, Brooke wants them to know that even though they might be nervous at first, they’ll soon be more comfortable and see that it’s not scary at all. When talking about her design, she also mentioned wanting others to know that CCGC is for EVERYONE, no matter who they are. And she is exactly right.
Brooke and her family are so special, and their words mean the world to all of us. It is truly awesome to have these amazing kids as a part of our community.
