Writing my book Dawn’s Daughter: Everything A Woman Needs To Know was easy compared to waiting to hear what young ladies think of it. Saturday, January 7th, I got my answer. They loved it.
I am on cloud 9 after sharing with some lovely young ladies who are vying for the title “Miss Alfred E. Beach High School 2012”. I was honored when their pageant advisor, Mrs. Vernessa David-Brown, allowed me to put on a workshop for the contestants and their mothers. It could not have been any more perfect. We met at the beautiful Mulberry Inn in downtown Savannah for a mother daughter lunch and workshop.
Mrs. David-Brown made sure the young ladies had the books about a month beforehand. So they had already read the book. They were prepared for our session. For the next hour, I stood before a wonderful, attentive audience as I discussed many topics from my new book including: self–esteem, setting goals, making choices, education, appearance, and the dangers of social networking. The students asked great questions and their parents joined in the discussion. We had a wonderful time.
It was such an honor as I began my mission of empowering young ladies by giving them the tools they will need to become the best.
