Dynamic Kids Expo at the Gwinnett Convention Center is Atlanta’s largest family, entertainment & products/services event for kids that serves as a fundraiser for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. This family event was filled with top-notch entertainment, hands-on fun activities, door prizes, a dynamic fashion show and talent search. 

Visitors enjoyed playing games at the Rolling Video Games truck, jumping at inflatable bouncers, listening to storytellers, interacting with clowns, face painting, magic shows, costumed characters, and watching performances by talented children entertainers including Shaniah Jones from the video “Tutus and Tennis Shoes", Kayla Saslow, Kirstyn Burkhalter, Maya Shea Penn, and DJ Priest.

We had to pleasure to chat with Megan 'Mimi' Welch from 'Mimi's Murals'. Mimi is a talented mural artist & decorative painter in Atlanta that prides herself on becoming independent at a young age.

Watch the video below and listen what Mimi has to say about personal success and finding happiness by learning to follow your passions.
