Book Reading for Children and Presentation for College Students

As stated in my last post, Friday was very eventful. I started by day by reading books to my daughter’s class. These little darlings were amazing; they listened, asked questions, and sang the All in Together Girls song. The center director messaged me a couple hours after I left and stated the kids were still singing the song. This truly touched my heart.

Next, I visited my undergraduate alma mater; Otterbein University. I met with a class to discuss my work with individuals with various disabilities, writing, and my books. I discussed career counseling, assistive technology, sheltered employment, supported employment, competitive employment, transition services, and more. A couple of students stayed to talk with me after class. I truly enjoyed speaking with the students about my work and passion. I also enjoyed giving them pointers I wish I knew when I was a student.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Father Time

The title of this blog post can mean so many things. This is probably the reason I chose this title. I wanted people to wander about the content of the article and naturally think about what this means to them. The interesting thing about the title, is that I interviewed someone in the past and this is what the person referenced when discussing Affirmative Action. The reference was regarding out with the old language of hiring minorities and in with the new language and law protecting these individuals. And when I think about affirmative action, it protected so many individuals besides the intended population.

My reference to old and new is regarding the end of October and the beginning of November. Out with the old month and sales goal and in with the new month and sales goal.

Check out this TikTok video for Good Morning Amira as I prepare for November and selling 15 books next month.

4 More Books Left

On September 20th, I started a challenge to sell 15 books a month, until December. This means that my goal is to sell 60 books by the end of December. I have almost reached my September goal. I just need to sell four more books.

Feel free to help me by reposting, sharing, liking, and buying a book.

Preparation Makes the Load a Little Easier to Carry

For some people, things come so natural. However, for other people like myself “Preparation makes the load a little easier to carry.” And that’s quite alright. No one is perfect and meant to know things immediately. Preparation doesn’t make perfect, but it gives you a foundation.

Take athletes and music artists for example, they have to continuously prepare for competitions and performances. Some of them participate in vocal lessons, cyphers, or training camps to help them prepare their voices, body, and skills.
