Visiting Little Rock Central High School in April…

10 Feb

It seems like 2013 is flying by. I can’t believe we’re ten days into February already. It’s baffling. Whatever your dreams are remain focused before another year passes without you getting closer to them coming true.

I received a phone call last week from a college friend. She shared BrookLyn’s Journey with a teacher at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. A student borrowed it from this teacher later on that same day. She read the book before the end of the school day and enjoyed it.  As a result, the teacher asked if I would come and speak with the students.  Without hesitation, I agreed to travel to Little Rock in April.

I am completely humbled and honored that my book has been placed in the library at Little Rock Central High School. My goal from the very beginning has always been to be a support in the lives of all teens but especially LGBTQ teens. My visit will allow me to visit with a diverse group of teens. The purpose of my visit will be to discuss my writing journey but more so to encourage them to follow their dreams. To remind them that where they come from doesn’t determine where they’re going. Of course, it plays a role in their future but their parents’ successes or failures don’t necessarily determine the outcome of their lives.

When I began my writing journey my dream was to visit school and college campuses across the country.  This is the first school that I will be visiting. I am probably more excited than the students.  It’s because of the support of my friend that the book entered the hallways of Little Rock Central and for that I am truly grateful…
