Mentor Rasheda Kamaria Williams Empowers Teens to Live Above Bullying, Drama, and Societal Pressure in New Book
From cyber bullying to societal pressure, 21st-century girls face challenges that generations before them may have never imagined. But they also have unlimited resources and opportunities to live powerfully.
Rasheda Kamaria Williams, an award-winning mentor and chief empowering officer for Empowered Flower Girl, explores how girls and young women can use their personal power to make a difference in her new book, “Be EmPOWERed: How to Live Above & Beyond Life’s Drama.”
Written for and inspired by girls, “Be EmPOWERed” is an interactive guidebook and journal packed with inspirational prose, thought-provoking questions and written activities.
Once teased and bullied by classmates for being weird and different, Rasheda found a way to embrace and ultimately celebrate her uniqueness. The book reveals her journey from excluded to emPOWERed and how she got there with help from trusted adults, mentors, friends and ultimately herself.
“Life isn’t always easy or fair. But if you’re equipped with the right tools, it makes the process more meaningful,” Rasheda says. “You can learn a lot – especially from yourself.”
“Be EmPOWERed: How to Live Above & Beyond Life’s Drama” is available on Amazon.com.
