Kellanie Kelly, Student, Mount Waddy Primary School, Friendship, Jamaica
MIC has made many changes in my life since it was launched on April 14, 2014. It gives me the courage and the ability to do much better than I usually did before. It has made me a better girl, and I have learned to do many more possible things.

Mighty in Character means to strive for excellence and goals. It means a lot to me. It helps me to become better. It helps me and my classmates to do well in class. It gives me confidence.

The Foundation's vision is to help children and our youth to create their own pathway to success by recognizing and embracing the opportunities that exist around them and exhibit Mighty In Character traits with a no border no barrier mentality way of life.
To Inspire, educate, transform, guide and challenge the younger generation in the MIC Leader way and identifying future leaders who will champion the Foundation’s commitment to perpetual prosperity and preservation of its legacy.
