Avril McDonald grew up in a small beach town in New Zealand, trained as a primary school teacher and then worked hard to become a Managing Director of a Global Digital Entertainment Company in London and became a mum.

She specialises in transforming ideas into reality. Right now she wants to transform ideas that have great meaning to her and a positive sustainable impact on our world. She wanted to create beautiful characters and stories that help kids manage tough emotions and feel brave (because we all have to be a little brave sometimes). She created www.feelbrave.com and continues on the delightful yet challenging journey of trying to develop a global children’s brand both as a business and with a charitable arm that has the vision to give children everywhere access to tools to help them feel brave and reach their pure potential.
