We are four sisters who have spent years exploring the world and careers that we are passionate about. We’d love to think we’ve finally landed on what we love doing forever but the goal posts always change as do we. We started Fig & Wally as a way to help our kids explore the real world around them. While they have so many opportunities to discover cool creatures and characters, we also wanted them to discover and explore professional possibilities through inspiring people across the world. An opportunity we never had. So we started this fun Kids Get Inspired series through which children all over the world can meet and be inspired by professionals as they discover who they want to become.
what, why and how
WHAT WE DO
We introduce children to real life professionals and people with inspiring stories from across the globe through our Kids Get Inspired virtual chat series.
WHY WE DO IT
The world is full of diverse and inspiring people, professions and stories that children are rarely informed about. We believe that when children are exposed to the richness and power of real life stories, they will be better prepared to explore and achieve their own dreams as adults.
HOW WE DO IT
We host guest speakers from diverse professions, cultures and life experiences on a virtual chat with children. Kids get to learn about how and why us ‘adults’ pursue our passions and dreams. We also produce edited recordings of the chat.
