Poppy has big dreams - lots of them! But following her dreams isn't as easy as it sounds. It's a good thing Poppy's friends and family - who love her no matter what - encourage her to keep believing in herself and making her dreams come true. Kristi Yamaguchui is an ice skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows about dreaming big. The motto Always Dream serves as Kristi's personal inspiration as well as the name of her charitable foundation for children. This philosophy has contributed to Kristi's success on and off the ice, and one that she aspires to instill in the hearts of children.
