Kelly-Anne Suarez helps inspire children and adults to "discover the magic of color" while working as community and media relations manager at the Crayola Experience in Easton, PA. Her submission was the selected pick of the week during our "I Love My Job" campaign in February that highlights the positive aspects of work.

We want to know why you love your job. Send us your "I love my job" story or submission through the end of February. Our selected submission each week -- like Kelly-Anne's-- will receive a sweet treat and care package to share with coworkers.

Here is why Kelly-Anne loves her job:

I love my job for oh SO many reasons, but one of the biggest is this: Crayola's mission is to raise creatively alive kids. In turn, at Crayola Experience, we believe that creativity is an essential skill that can be taught and should be nurtured, but--above all--MUST be experienced.

As the communications manager, it's my job not only to inspire people to visit and "discover the magic of color" for themselves, but to make sure kids and adults alike are reminded how important creativity is in daily life. This takes MANY forms. For the last two summers, I've hit the open road with an 8-foot crayon character to surprise amazing kids all of the country with a personalized Crayola experience. And that's just one example.

Whether I'm crafting on talk shows, planning kid-driven fashion competitions, playing with TV crews in our attraction, launching new locations, or building partnerships with national non-profits, I know that I'm advancing our mission and (hopefully) making life a little more colorful for the people I meet. Who can argue with that?
