Our logo design was inspired by an idea from Mikayla’s younger sister, Lauren.
Lauren and her mom had been talking about incorporating a ladybug into the logo design for Mikayla’s Voice for a number of reasons. Even more quiet than Mikayla, ladybugs don’t make any sounds, they represent good luck and good fortune in all cultures, no one ever harms a ladybug, or is afraid of a them. Although most ladybugs are red, every once in awhile you will find one that is yellow, orange or pink. With a bit of an explanation, the image of a ladybug is a great metaphor for Mikayla and inclusion.
One morning before school, twelve year old Lauren, suggested using a regular red ladybug with black spots, but suggested “including” one yellow spot.
Consistent with our mission to inspire kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion, this simple idea clearly shares the message of inclusion to everyone no matter their age. We are delighted that a child has developed the concept behind our logo design.
Way to go, Lauren!
