Many women, especially moms, put our dreams on hold for the sake of others. We wait to pursue our own passions, putting other people first. But if we want our kids to go after their dreams, shouldn’t we set the example?
Rosie J. Pova is an award-winning children’s author and writing coach on a mission to inspire kids to use their creativity, dream BIG and believe in themselves. She regularly speaks at schools, sharing her journey as an immigrant from Bulgaria and encouraging students to persist, push through rejection and hold a higher vision for themselves. Rosie’s latest picture book, Sunday Rain, will be released in March of 2021.
