Josie is a reserved, driven, young girl, and Bud is an outgoing, ambitious, young boy. The two friends are different in many ways and those differences are a big part of what makes their friendship special.
The talent show auditions are around the corner and Josie’s introverted nature entices her to let fear stand in the way of doing something she loves to do in the talent show. In her time of need, Josie turns to her best friend Bud for support in facing her fear of performing in front of a crowd. Josie and Bud’s friendship show us that we can leverage the power of a growth mindset to pursue greatness.
