I am super excited. I found out earlier today that the comment I left on The Addicted2Novels blog was chosen as the winner for the giveaway contest. I will be receiving a copy of The Cinderella Society and my name and comment will be entered into an additional contest where I have the opportunity to win a signed copy and have $100.00 dollars donated to Girls, Inc in my name. Lena Beana as her friends call her asked fellow readers what it meant to be empowered as a teenage girl. My answer was…
“If you want to be empowered, you must first commit to being no one other than yourself.
The best advice I ever received was to be a Leader not a follower.
Being a teenager is not easy but it can be a lot less hard if you recognize that your actions can influence the path that others take.
Being a positive influence is sometimes tricky in the teenage world but if it is done well others will follow.
My father was the one who encouraged me to become a Leader. He believed in me which in return made ME believe in myself. In honor of my father (who passed away two years ago) I am paying it forward and offering my own giveaway. The prize is a secret. (Okay, let’s be honest, I’m not even sure what the prize will be.) It will be something that signifies empowerment.
You have until Monday, April 26th to leave a comment telling me about a time when you felt empowered. I love to be inspired. Whose ever comment inspires me the most will be the winner. By sharing your story, you might help someone else become empowered.
