About the Author

Jedidah Karanja is a mother, a coach, and a learning and development specialist passionate about learning and development of children. Drawing on her own experience growing up in Kenya, and bringing up a child in Australia, Jedidah believes that foundational years is a critical stage for children to be equipped with skills and resources they need to grow to become confident, positive and independent human beings. Inspired by her son Rafael, Jedidah is interested in contributing to the development of children and believes that with proper guidance, children are capable of understanding and adopting concepts that could initially be perceived as complex. Children, parents, schools, and communities can then benefit immensely in having children adopt positive powerful language as part of their everyday language. Jedidah strongly believes that our choice of language, including what we tell ourselves, is what shapes our experiences.
