Inspired by Nature

"As a young scholar I was enchanted by the symmetrical beauty and transformative life cycle of the BUTTERFLY. With the butterfly as a familiar, I empower creative minds to become Butterfly Scholars...always learning...always exploring."

~ Jessica Monroe

Butterfly Scholars create text, self and world connections by making analogies to the existence of the beautiful butterfly.
