About The Author
Why I started Daring Journey
I remember doing things that I didn't want to do just to fit in. To feel wanted. Being someone that I'm not, putting on a mask.
I cared so much about what people thought of me that I didn't stop and ask myself if I liked me?
Once I found out who I was, what I loved and what I'm passionate about I built confidence from within. I started loving myself and doing things for myself. I stopped caring what people thought of me and started doing what I wanted. It's such a beautiful feeling, when you find yourself and love yourself.
I believe I went through this so that I can share my msg with you all and help you be who you really are. To empower you that you can be and do anything you desire.
I started my own small business making jewellery and selling at markets at age nineteen. I wrote my first book and continue to write because that's what I love. I wrote Daring Journey a teenagers guide to be unapologetically you to share stories that teens like you go through. So you can relate and gain tips and tricks on how to get out of situations and to be yourself.
I see you sitting there, alone in your room. I see the hurt lining your face, and the defeat shrouding your shoulders. You don’t think anyone understands. But I see you.
You’re gripping my book and wondering why it was on your bed. You’re angry with your parents for giving it to you, angry at the book, and just plain angry; you throw it across the room. But it doesn’t really make you feel better, and the book keeps staring at you. So, you pick it up and turn it over to read the synopsis. In two paragraphs, you feel the first stirrings of hope. Maybe I’m not alone. Maybe someone else understands my pain. Maybe this book will give me a new perspective and help me manage my anxiety. For the first time in far too long, there is light at the end of this dark and lonely tunnel.
I know you’re ready for this. I’m here, I’m with you, and we are in this together.
May Daring Journey guide you and be there for you when you need it the most.
