It has been a busy few weeks for Leesburg 9-year-old Bellen Woodard, who has been interviewed by multiple national media outlets for her More than Peach Project.
Woodard is slated to be on the "Today" show's fourth hour with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on Friday morning. She has already appeared on "This Morning" on CBS and has had several other media clips, including with "People" magazine.
The More Than Peach Project started last year when Bellen noticed friends in her class would ask for a skin-color crayon, and it was always the peach color. Woodard decided to create art supply kits with multicultural skin tones, and she donated them to local schools.
Bellen's goal is to "empower students, build awareness, support opportunities in gifted education and dismantle perception gaps."
Woodard was recently honored by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors as part of Black History Month. She was chosen to be part of Target's "All in motion" clothing campaign and Chobani Yogurt's "Almost milk" campaign.
