Meet Rezi

As a polar bear, I show up when I’m needed most, to be a warm, soft friend. I spend my entire life roaming the frigid polar continent. I’m resourceful and I know how to endure and overcome challenges that may come by way. Because I live in the cold, I’m known for being strong and having great patience, sometimes waiting weeks and swimming over 200 miles for what I need to survive. In other words, I’m resilient, which is why I’m called Rezi Bear!

Being resilient is something you can find deep inside of yourself. When the going gets tough at school or in life and you don’t know the answer to a problem, you can start by believing in yourself and before you know it, you’ll be standing up to challenges and doing things you thought were impossible. The truth is with my polar bear strength you can make it through the hardest times and learn how to focus and find the motivation you need to make the right choices.

I’ll be your friend and help you to remember how resilient you are. Together we are worthy, tenacious, outstanding, and able to handle whatever comes our way!
