Viral video: Through social media and news exposure, including an appearance on Ellen, Ayaan became an internet sensation after his Mom posted a video of him repeating his daily aspirations: “I am smart, I am blessed, I can do anything!”
Relevant message: I Am Amazing offers both an uplifting message and also celebrates the everyday heroes that we have grown to rely on completely—people like firefighters, nurses, and teachers.
