This morning I am grateful. I just completed my writing session for today I am off to deliver a keynote this morning at HOFSTRA on the future, legacies and success… A speech that is filled with themes about pressure, family, love, hopes and dreams, failures… WHO ARE WE TO DREAM! Being seen as ATREVIDA! What I wish I had been told… My keynote title: THE NEXT BIG DREAM! And then I wake up to an email from my mentee, a high school junior who loves her some Green Day meeting her writing deadlines of getting to me a draft of a song she wrote in response to one of her favorite tunes… And can I just day she IS f…g brilliant. And if my life can’t get any better … the girls I work with teach me everyday why my work is important. And so it is.
Happy Latino Heritage Month!
Have the most beautiful day everyone! It’s time to go kill this speech… #LHM #hofstra #HHM #legacies #writerslife (at Casa Amor)
