The Author: Channa Bannis

This book was born from an assignment in a Diversity Leadership class in 2022. However, the topic for "I Love the Me I See" stems from a deeply personal place — motherhood. As a mother, entrepreneur, and student on the final chapter of obtaining a Masters in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice Leadership, I am acutely aware of how society's misrepresentation and skewed narratives could shape my son’s self-perception. This book became my response to the question, "How do I prepare my son to navigate a world that may not always recognize his true worth?"

What began as an assignment continues as an extension of my passion for helping to empower not only my son but all children who, like him, might face societal deconstruction. Every child deserves to be embodied with the joys of self-esteem, laughter, learning, community and boundless aspirations. Join me on this journey where, within the enriched pages of “I Love The Me I See” children are inspired to blossom in their authenticity and paint their own pictures of worth and aspirations.
