LUTZ, Fla. -- It's a stressful time for all of, but some kids in Tampa Bay are stepping up in a big way.

They're doing some great things, and they don't even know how awesome they are.

During this Pandemic, Deiah Riley is bragging on your kids. She wants to showcase superstars, from giving back to spreading love.

First up, is 12-year-old CeCe. Math's not her thing, but art definitely is. And that's not a bad thing, especially during a pandemic.

"I have always loved art since I was little. During this quarantine, I thought it would be fun to show others my art. So I started drawing on the sidewalk, and my whole neighborhood loved it," says CeCe.

On her neighborhood sidewalk, you'll find Winnie the Pooh, a Unicorn, Baby Yoda and more.

"So, I love to draw cartoons and fantasy characters. I'm not very good at realistic, the whole world inspires me, and especially Disney does," explains CeCe.

By now, you may think CeCe would love to work for Mickey Mouse when she gets older. But, that's not that case.

"I want to be an Ob/Gyn," says CeCe.

If you know a child who's doing amazing things, let Deiah brag on them.
