In "More Than Me and You," two dragons go on an adventure to discover the true meaning of "diversity" and have some interesting experiences along the way.
Written and Illustrated by: Anna Botkin and Bria MacBeath
About Anna Botkin: Anna Botkin has always loved storytelling. Whether it’s through music, theatre or writing, she has always enjoyed sharing stories with others. When Anna learned about Diverse Minds from her English teacher, she thought it sounded like a wonderful way to improve at these interests. Anna was also really excited at the idea of having a chance to make a difference. Anna feels that Diversity is a big word with big implications for how we should go about living our lives, and through this competition she tried to unwrap what it means to be “more than just you and me.” When she’s not writing, Anna enjoys singing, baking, and spending time with her young nieces and nephews.
About Bria MacBeath: Bria MacBeath really enjoys drawing — so when her friend Anna suggested that they work together on this project, she was really excited. Diverse Minds intrigued Bria, but it seemed overwhelming to both write and illustrate. She thought it would be amazing to be able to bring a story to life, and did her best to show diversity through her drawings.
