To Lead or Not to Lead by Shanika P. Carter

General Nonfiction

From the author: "Sometimes it takes challenges to help one discover how strong they can be. This recess situation, for me, was the challenge that I needed. Facing those who had certain expectations of me, and then admitting to my failure pushed and uplifted me; this was whether certain people supported me and encouraged me or insulted me and tried to kick me more while I was already feeling down. It led me to believe in second chances and timing. Once I got my second chance and was presented with more tests and challenges. I had found a strength within myself to keep moving forward and prove to myself, more than anyone else, that I could do what I set my mind to do; you can do the same.” From $7.99 SHOP NOW
