But wait there's more....

A Different Princess

We all want to belong somewhere. We all want to love and to be loved within the ‘Tribe’ to which we belong. But what happens when we feel different to the rest of the tribe? Is it possible to love someone from another tribe?

Once upon a time, there lived a different princess. Once upon a time, this different princess made her own choice about which tribe she wanted to belong to. Once upon a time, alongside this princess we also learnt that the color of our hair, of our eyes and of our skin, our weight and our height, where we are from and what language we speak, are of no importance.

The only thing of importance is where and with whom are heart is at peace. ‘A different princess’ – A fairy tale about Love, Acceptance and Inclusion. A fairy tale based on a true story that happened in November 2017.

Who is this…Different Princess? Watch below to find out!
