Benny Harlem is an aspiring model and singer-songwriter, but most importantly, he’s a father to his six year old daughter Jaxyn. He knows that being a good father means a lot more than simply providing a roof over his little girl’s head. It’s also important as a father to do what he can to help instill the following:

  • Confidence and strength
  • Joy, hope, love

These qualities are important to cultivate because they encourage the child to survive and thrive in the world.

From the beginning, Harlem decided that he would always encourage his daughter to have confidence in herself and embrace her heritage.

‘She’s a beautiful girl who’s gonna be a pretty woman,’ he says ‘But I teach her to love herself first,’ because how a person feels inside is more important than what’s on the surface.
