New York Times best-selling author Denene Miller has a gorgeous little girl who has just started her own YouTube show called “Totally Lila.” In her own words, Lila said “We’re going to be doing outfits and crafts and room ideas and just cool stuff like that.” Lila is a natural on camera and her energy is infectious.
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of kids in my life. I have nieces, nephews, little cousins and my friends’ kids. Helping them find good, age-appropriate media to consume can be a challenge at times. I don’t want them getting into artists and shows that are for adults, but at the same time, they are very intelligent and some of the kid-friendly media simply doesn’t cut it. But for the tweens in your life, I highly recommend “Totally Lila.” This kid is funny, silly, smart and I’m looking forward to her next videos. It’s not some over-produced audition video either. It’s very much a for-kids, by a kid type of deal.
Plus, it’s so nice to see a happy, confident black girl using her creativity to express herself in a positive way. Is she the next Issa Rae/Shonda Rhimes/Oprah? Could be!
Take a look at the debut video and tell us what you think! I’m sure Lila would appreciate a nice comment or two on her YouTube channel as well.
