UW-Madison's Kyira Hauer is receiving a
2017 Small Business Champion Award.
Hauer owns Kinda Kreative, LLC. The business has multiple facets, including public speaking, art and a variety of different workshops and coaching events. The contest entry says the business' mission "is to inspire and empower people to express themselves freely, take the next steps in their journey to self-discovery and celebrate their inherent worth."

At the forefront of the award is the "#ReclaimBeauty Project," which focuses on "uncovering, celebrating and nurturing the beauty of every person inside and out."

As part of the newest branch of the project, Hauer and her team will film a documentary showcasing the experiences of people with diverse and intersecting identities striving to end bullying, the stigma around appearance and personality development, and the sense of "otheredness" kids often feel throughout their lives.

As part of the award, Hauer has been invited to participate in a national leadership event this spring in Dallas.
