This is my story. I want to share with you how I went from being withdrawn to speaking out, from timid to adventurous, from pitiful to powerful, and from depression to being enthusiastically excited for each day! I am not saying that it’s a bad thing if you have a withdrawn personality, but for me, I was taught that I was worthless and I wasn’t free to be myself. However, my life was radically changed at the Central PA Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar where I learned that I don’t have to judge myself through other people’s eyes and that we all can enjoy being ourselves.

In this book I will share my journey. I will take you to the deepest, darkest, and most painful times in my life. I will show you how I went from being at rock bottom to climbing to be on top of the world in hopes that you will also get addicted to being high on life, and that you will let that buzz allow you to live your life to the fullest and accomplish all that you desire. You absolutely can do this!
