Greetings to you from HBCU kidz, Inc. and the Gosier Family!
This year we are focusing our time and talent in this new era in raising outstanding FUTURE DREAMERS, LEADERS and ACHIEVERS while at the same time embracing positive family culture.
All of the various photo images of the Obama Family just make us so proud to be who we are...DOing what we DO... during the time that we are living in this 21st century.
Our family is capturing our feelings and hope for tomorrow in scrapbooks and photo journals for our future generation to embrace. We are inspired to plan for a brighter future and we invite all like minded families to connect with us here on this blog!
Did U know...any baby born this year...who survives to see their 87th birthday...is likely to witness the 22nd century? Do the math! We were blessed to welcome a new addition to our family on October 24, 2012 and we are committed to equipping her the best we can!
Can our families work together to implement a fantastic year as we prepare 200,000 FUTURE DREAMERS, LEADERS and ACHIEVERS to succeed?

At age 5, Nazie (her nickname), had to fib about her age to audition for her very first acting job--the starring role in Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) because the minimum age to be considered was six. She eventually beat out some 4,000 other local kids to play Hushpuppy--the indomitable child prodigy and survivalist who lives with her dying father in the backwoods bayou squalor of Louisiana. Director Benh Zeitlin told 'The Daily Beast' that when he auditioned Nazie, he immediately realized he'd discovered what he was looking for, and changed the 'Beasts' script to accommodate her strong-willed personality.
She appeared on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992- )' on June 29, 2012 and told him that the Zhané part of her name means "fairy" in Swahili. Her nickname is Naysie. According to a USA Today interview, her name is pronounced "Qui-ven-ZHEN-ay".
