Sherina – Sherina’s Adventure
Sherina’s Adventure might be an oldie, but it’s a goldie for a reason. Catchy tunes aside, we love how Sherina’s (Sherina Munaf) brave character confronts his pesky classmate Sadam (Derby Romero) and outsmarts any trouble she encounters along the way. This musical adventure is a feel-good story that will encourage everyone to be brave and keep exploring!
Chihiro – Spirited Away
Another brave young girl can be found in the 10-year-old Chihiro from Hayao Miyazaki’s Oscar-winning film Spirited Away.

Do you have a passion for business but never had the time to put the plan in motion? Learn from Kristy Thomas (Schyler Fisk) and her middle-schooler friends who start a babysitting business in The Babysitters Club. They will show you and your kids that anything can be done once you set your mind, pour your soul, and put your heart into it.
Sakura Kinomoto – Cardcaptor Sakura
Meet Sakura, an energetic elementary student, who wields a magical power to collect all Clow Cards that she accidentally released. While we cannot suddenly fly with a magic shaft or summon a wind spirit, we can show our love to our friends and family like Sakura. Yes, she is a cardcaptor, but most of all, she’s a true friend and a devoted daughter and sister. Try to pay more attention and give a little bit of TLC to your family, because after all, they are the ones who will stick by you no matter what.
