We are in the early stages of producing a new video curriculum series featuring Quaden Bayles who was the "bullied boy with dwarfism" who's story went viral and touched the hearts of millions around the world.Yarraka, Quaden's mother reached out to Brooks to help her son, an Aboriginal 9-year-old, and experienced tremendous success in the development of his emotional resilience.

So what does this have anything to do with the GENzEQ alliance? A lot! The productions we create will now have an...
