Crayola has a new line of crayons coming out this year. Colors of the World – crayons with specially formulated colors representing people of the world. I'm proud to say I was a part of this project. I worked with the team at Crayola to help bring to market the 48 page coloring book that celebrates diversity and inclusion in a fun and educational way.
