“You’re going to take something that is really brilliant about your character … do a project and then your character will then be transferred to NOBDOY.”
– Amanda, teacher

“NOBODY will become a part of every child in the class and become quite special because of that.”

“They all have so many unique experiences to draw on … when peers are teaching their peers about these sorts of things it really has a great impact.”

“It’s not just the eyes that are stuck on the doll. It’s the story that goes with the eyes that is so important.”

“It gives the children something tangible.”

“NOBODY captures on the outside what is inside each student.”
– Kelly Clark, Director

“Everybody knows respect is important, but there is a lot of confusion about how to build respect … Who Is NOBODY? helps people figure out what makes them unique and not hide that part of themselves. I wanted my students to discover and share their interests and build their sense of self based on their actions.”
– Kelly Clark, Director

“The children who are waiting to have their turn with NOBODY are so excited … and their ideas are phenomenal about who they are going to help for their Who Is NOBODY? Project.”
