You too, can change the world in 2012!

Leah and I have been friends on LinkedIn and revel in a comradery that has been mutually beneficial over the past couple of years!
Her success story is a great read and inspiration to me for the New Year on how one person can make a difference in their own community!
Leah Oviedo is an artist, author and human rights activist. Her background includes work with foster and homeless youth, domestic violence, sexual assault and environmental sustainability.
Her new book, “I Am More Than Just A Girl @ is a non-fiction resource to empower young women with information, creative exercises and loving acceptance. Topics include women’s rights, hotline resources, sexual assault, violence prevention, education and acceptance of others. The book also includes journal pages, affirmations, stress management tips and a self-defense guide.
Leah created this book as a larger project to encourage young women to be strong, independent and intelligent. She told me she wanted women to feel empowered, kept informed and be considered equal. She wants them to know and feel that as an individual they matter and with the tools in her book, they can accomplish their dreams that may seem initially out of reach…Realizing that circumstances such as economic situation, race, culture upbringing and prejudice do not have to control our lives.
Here’s to empowering ourselves, one and all, in making a difference in our world  in 2012!
Happy New Year!

  1. Oh Wow! Thank you Al. I am so excited that my book will help girls and young women lead a happier, safer and more independent life.

    I want to do more so I am starting a program to get free books (and raise funds at the same time) to local organizations that work with youth. This is all so exciting. I love to help people and to have you help me with nothing to gain, that fills me with more joy. This is just one more reminder of what an awesome person you are.

    Happy New Year Everyone!
