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.

It led me to believe in second chances and timing. Once I got my second chance and was presented with more tests and challenges.
