Teens, parents, and teachers will be excited to see one of America's youngest and most-requested motivational speakers this Saturday in Los Angeles County, CA. 13-year old Shanaya Fastje will be appearing at the Los Angeles Latino Book & Family Festival on October 13th in connection with the release of her latest book Bully in the Mirror which has hit the top 20 of Amazon's "Hot List" upon its release today.
"Author and Motivator Shanaya Fastje at 12 wows many", said The El Paso Times.
One of President Obama's 2011 "Volunteer Service Award" winners, Shanaya's Anti-Bullying message has an appeal to youths across the country. Shanaya, a recent High School graduate, is an award winning Author and Illustrator. Both Educators and Students can use this new book to learn effective techniques for dealing with bullies and building self-esteem.
"On the morning of each new day, create a dream for the day, because dreaming gets you closer to the dream. For example, wake up and tell yourself, "Today my dream will be to share a fear with someone." By sharing fears with people you trust, you might find that your fear may be the same as someone else's and you will learn that everyone has fears." Shanaya Fastje
Shanaya will be speaking as well as signing copies of Bully in the Mirror for her fans at 1:30 pm on Saturday, October 13, 2012.
