Cheers to borough son Legasii Fox. This tween has faced odds few adults have had to endure — he grew up in a broken home with an abusive father who was later imprisoned and a stepfather who was also arrested.
He did poorly in school and couldn’t control his emotions. But after discovering the Brooklyn-based organization Children of Promise he was able to turn his life around. The organization supports kids with incarcerated parents and helped him get on the right track and succeed in school.
Legasii now has dreams of going to college and starting his own fashion line and has been selected by city-based fashion company KIDBOX.
Legasii was asked to join its new Kids Board of Directors along with Victoria Feng, 13; Danika Every Eaton, 8; Liv Morgan, 7; Tennyson Vest, 7; Megan McConnaughay, 14; Nylah Nash, 6; Sylvie Sherman, 11; and Vic Berardelli, 11.
There, he will have the opportunity to advise the company on kids’ fashion while also learning firsthand from top executives in the industry.
KIDBOX is a style-box service for newborns through size 14 that provides hassle-free shopping with free shipping. “Every Box Kept Helps Children In Need,” according to its website.
Standing O knows that there are a lot Os in this kid’s future.
