Congratulations to our latest
Kids Flaunt Contest Winners!


I Love Being Unique!” By Shona Karp

DHIFI Inc. congratulates Shona Karp on her winning essay about what makes her, her!  Shona was selected as our Grand Prize Kids Flaunt winner because, in her essay, she portrayed a sense of self and inner peace that even some adults never achieve in a lifetime.  Shona is a true flaunter and role model paving the way for other kids to accept themselves unconditionally.  We particularly loved when Shona wrote: “I try never to feel down, because I know there are people going through much, much harder times than me.  There is no point feeling sad when you can just change the way people think of you. Just be yourself and remember, you’re amazing!” Congratulations Shona!
