Inspiration for Reinventing Yourself #StreamTeam

Netflix #StreamTeam

At the beginning of every month, Netflix adds a plethora of new shows, television programs, series and movies that are full of inspiration for reinventing yourself. This month (March 2015) sees the addition of a new Netflix original series – the Tina Fey produced Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a comedy series that was originally created for NBC. It stars The Office’s Ellie Kemper as a woman who gets rescued from a cult after 15 years and starts her life again as a nanny for a famous socialite in New York. Armed with just a backpack, light­up sneakers and a couple of past­due library books, she takes on a world she didn't think even existed anymore. Despite circumstances, the three main characters, Kimmy, Tituss and Jaqueline, are all able to reinvent themselves in one way or another to make it in New York City.

Children are keen to these characteristics as well. They use imaginative play all the time throughout the day. I see my girls reinventing themselves using accents, clothes or characteristics of others. Through numerous movies and television episodes, children are able to see a new side of themselves that they might not have known was there by relating to characters in the shows they watch.

Netflix expanded their children's programming this month as well with the addition of a new show: Inspector Gadget. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is also available this month and the dragons in this movie definitely reinvented themselves.
