I Am Possible with Shea

What Inspires You? I am inspired to make a difference in the world one lipgloss at a time. $1 of each lipgloss tube sold is donated to a children's charity. It is really important for me to be able to give back and it's even better to be able to do it while looking great!

What dreams do you have for the future? I want to see my lipgloss company grow and be able to help change lives in the process. I want to eventually add more items to my brand!

Who is your role model and why? My role model is my mom because she taught me that people will remember you for your heart, AND she is a good cook!

I am possible because...I believe in myself!

Why do you like Isossy? They are fun and funky and fashionable! They make me feel good inside when I wear the clothing giving me the confidence to be how I want to be!

What words of wisdom do you think every child should grow up knowing? People will remember how you make them feel. Always be kind, compassionate and strong.

I Am Possible with... Devyn

What inspires you?

My fans inspire me because,  I know that I am a role model to them .
Therefore, it pushes me harder and harder to do the best that I can
because if I can do it they can do it too.

What are your dreams for the future?

I used to say that I would like to see myself selling out arenas and
traveling the world,  but as I've gotten older, I've realized that
sometimes the best accomplishment is giving to others. My number one
priority is to buy my mother a beautiful house and a car. She's worked
and sacrificed so much to make me happy, so my goal is to give her
that happiness in return.

Who is your role model and why?

Nicki Minaj is my role model because she sets a stamp for woman. She
has a great work ethic, she stands for what she believes in, and she
looks good doing it!

Please finish this sentence: I am possible because…. "I know where I
want to go in life and no one will steer my path but me."

Why do you like Isossy Children and how does it make you feel when you wear Isossy Children clothes (if you have worn them)?

Isossy  is very unique and fashion forward for kids. It has a high end
tone but still a urban look, leaving kids looking cool and swaggy.

What words of wisdom do you think every child should grow up knowing?

Have a close relationship with God. He gives you all of your blessings
even when you might not even know. Once you stay close to God, no one can stop you.

I Am Possible with Samantha Buggle

Hi! My name is Samantha Buggle; I am 12 years old and I Am Possible. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was three years old.  That means, there is unusual activity in my brain that causes me to have seizures. I have over 100 seizures a day, but I never let that stop me from achieving my dreams. I am an actress, a model, a blogger, and an advocate for any child that has something that makes them special.

I decided to start an online community entitled “Overcoming Epilepsy with Sammy” to share my story with the world and give other kids who might have illnesses or diseases hope. I also created a fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of America and have raised thousands of dollars for the organization. My favorite thing about sharing my story is hearing from kids all around the world and how I have inspired them.

I absolutely love fashion, performing, and the runway. A fashion event called East Coast Starz is where I began to model. Starz really gave me the confidence to come out of my shell and even if I had a seizure onstage my new modeling friends where there to support me and cheer me on. I am now represented by Shirley Grant Management, it is a dream come true! They represent stars on Disney, Nick, Broadway, and movies! I couldn’t believe that they choose me and then I realized when you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

It can be difficult to have Epilepsy. The days are exhausting, and I miss a lot of it because of my seizures. It’s hard to keep up in school, I’ll probably never be able to ride a two wheeler, and I can’t stay outside for long periods of time. I think having Epilepsy makes me special, thought. I have the opportunity to do more. I can make a difference. I can inspire others to take risk and dream big, no matter what their limitations are.

What inspires you?

I am always inspired by kids who make a difference. That is the reason I
created Overcoming Epilepsy with Sammy. There are so many kids all around
the world who have done amazing things despite the obstacles they faced
like *Malala* Yousafzai, or Alexandra Scott. I’m always inspired by anyone
with passion to achieve their dreams.

What are your dreams for the future?

In the future, I see myself on set. My brother, Ryan Buggle is a child
actor who has been in lots of movies and TV shows. I want us to be a team.
I will produce and direct, and he will act. I also want to continue my work
with the Epilepsy Foundation and maybe have my own clothing line too!

Who is your role model and why?

My role model is my mom, Janine. My mom is a NICU Nurse. She is like a
super hero. Everyday she saves little babies lives. She is doing important
work and making a difference. I can only hope that one day, I grow up to
work hard just like her and make a difference in other people’s lives.

I am possible…

I am possible because I never let my limitations keep me down or stop me
from achieving a dream of mine. Having over 100 seizures does not define
all of me. I am so much more; I am an actress, a model, a friend, and a
sister. I am more than all of the hospital visits, and all of the
medicines. I am brave, and I am possible because I believe in myself.

I learned about Isossy Children at East Coast Starz. I immediately fell in
love with the clothes they are comfortable, fun, fashionable but more than
anything I love how they are more than just clothes! Isossy Children
connects you with the whole world! Isossy Children celebrates bringing
girls together and celebrating their differences at the same time, and that
is what I’m all about!

Words of Wisdom..

Do all things through kindness. Kindness is the most important thing in the
whole world to me. Sometimes there will be bullies at school, sometimes you
will have a really bad day, but you have to try to approach each situation
with kindness because that’s what makes the world a better place.

I Am Possible with Ava Ranae

Ava is a very smart, creative, funny, yet reserved 7-soon to be 8 year old. She enjoys attending school, where she is at the top of her second grade class. Recently, she was honored by her schools superintendent for a writing she did on Susan B. Anthony about women’s rights. Her piece was also published in the district calendar! Besides school, Ava loves to attend art classes, where she completed her first pottery course, as well as expressive drawing. She also has a love for American Girl Dolls. Aside from everyday life, Ava has had the opportunity to journey into a new found love...modeling! She has had the privilege to work with many known photographers, and magazines. Currently, she is the Cover Girl for Honey Be Kids Mag (Instagram @HoneyBeKidsMag). And just recently, she was selected to be brand ambassador for Naturalicious hair care products (Instagram @Naturalicious1). Ava is also a “Jus10H Kid” for fashion designer Justin Hayes (Instagram @Jus10Hisfashion) where she does photoshoots for amazing causes such as Type 2 Diabetes Awareness, Multiple Sclerosis Awareness and many more! She also has had the privilege to walk in the I Am Me 4th and 5th Annual Fashion Show, as well as the Children’s Making Strides Against Cancer 2nd Annual Fashion Show. 
So far, 2016 has been really good to Ms. Ava. So we decided to keep the “good” going by kicking off workshop sessions. We are in the very beginning stages of our journey, but our target will be primarily for mothers with daughters who are looking for some sort of motivation or direction for a lifestyle boost. I get so many questions on Ava’s Instagram ranging anywhere from hair care products to education apps/books to recommend. We receive so many messages from moms, who say we have inspired them in some way or another, so I’d figure why not now! The idea will be to focus on basic natural hair care, travel, shopping fashionably but frugal, child encouragement and so much more! Very excited to see how our journey down this new road goes, but I know with time, faith, drive and determination it will be something AMAZING!

What inspires you?

Waking up every morning knowing my family is healthy.

What are your dreams for the future?

To be a model, and artist, and to make sure I share my knowledge.
Especially if it can help someone in someway. That is very important. 

Who is your role model and why?

My mom is my role model because she supports me. And every single day she
tells me to try my best in all that I do.

I am possible because...

I am alive and well. I have a voice and a mind and I use them both....a lot. 

Why do you like Isossy Children clothing?

They look sooooo pretty. I especially like the colors. Sitting front row at
the fashion show for NYFW made me like them even more. I could see all of the
nice clothes up close! Both my mom and I have our own favorite pieces, but
there's definitely one piece that we agree should be apart of my
wardrobe...and if you know my mom, it will be!

What words of wisdom do you think every child should grow up knowing?

Try your hardest. Always do what is in your heart. And never, ever give
up. Oh and alway have faith....always!
