Akeelah and the Bee

"Changing the world... one word at a time."

The story of Akeelah and the Bee is about an eleven-year old girl named Akeelah Anderson who is a very smart girl who can spell better than anyone at her middle school in South Los Angeles. One day, when she wins the school spelling bee, Akeelah decides to seriously study for the regional spelling bee. Her spelling bee coach is a strict english professor named Joshua Larabee. However, her mother Tanya is completely against her daughter's decision and thinks that she's obsessing over something that was once a game to Akeelah.

Despite her mother's request, Akeelah decides to follow her dreams and compete in the regional spelling bee in Washington, D.C without having her mother's permission. Akeelah not only decides to compete in the spelling bee because she wants to do this for her own entertainment, but she also decides to do this because she feels compels to do so through inspiration.
