“Follows and Likes Is This All That I’m Worth?” A Multicultural Book for Teens and YA On How to Understand True Success in the Age of Social Media
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How can we create a positive mindset for youth and help them believe in themselves when it seems as though they are constantly bombarded with negative news, social media propaganda and distorted views of what success really is? Author Kristi Maggio, founder of Maggio Multicultural Academy and Foundation and educator for over 20 years, has written this book as a tool for youth to help them understand what true success is and how to achieve it, no matter what struggles they are facing today.
We often tell young people they can do anything or be anything, and what they see on social media is always the final product. However, seldom do we reveal to them the journey that people face in order to get to where they are today. “Follows and Likes Is This All That I’m Worth?” is a guide to understanding what success really is, and it reveals the inspirational stories of amazing people who created success in their lives despite the challenges they faced at a young age.
By sharing important lessons on how to create success and the inspirational stories of a multicultural group of people, many of whom have overcome very traumatic experiences as children, youth can find comfort and hope that no matter what their ethnicity is or what obstacles they may encounter, they too will rise and meet the challenges of life with great success.
