Do you remember little Samara Muir from Australia? A month ago, Samara and her mother were in line for a Frozen activity when a woman in line turned to the harmless happy little girl and said that Elsa couldn’t possibly be black because “black is ugly”. Rightfully, Samara and her mother have gotten lots of support around the world. In line with her love of Frozen, she was invited to a high tea in a Melbourne hotel with Queen Elsa and her sister, Princess Anna.
High tea is a British and Australian formal event that includes tea time along with cakes and sometime a hot meal. Samara was joined by over 200 other children to Langham Hotel which included a theme-fare reindeer cupcakes and snowflake cookies.
Samara is of Aboriginal descent and since the incident has had to deal with questioning and hating her skin color – something no child should have to go through. Her mother Rachel said, “It was heartbreaking for me, but with all the messages from everybody it has been overwhelming. She’s not scrubbing her skin any more. I read her all the messages she receives, including a message from Queen Elsa, messages from people telling her not to be ashamed of who she is and to be proud. I think all those those messages have sunk in.” We’re so happy her dream of meeting Elsa came true and that she knows princesses can come in every beautiful color.
If you support Samara, please SHARE her story with her friends.
This young girl just ‘let it go’ by having the best fairy tale ending of a lifetime.
