I AM BEAUTIFUL is one of the things that most women struggle to believe is true about themselves, which causes so many to settle. The inability to recognize the great things about you or to see beyond your past choices or shortcomings, can compromise your future and potential for greatness. Through my story and journey of self-discovery, I challenge you to embark on your own. My hope is that you will be able to see and declare the great things about you and that you will tap into the confidence to successfully pursue your dreams.
With a mandate to challenge women to never settle, author, lecturer and motivational speaker, VALERIE JEANNIS, LMSW is a licensed social worker and the creative force behind the #IDaretoDreamProject, an international campaign daring women and youth to pursue their dreams unapologetically. Valerie teaches and conducts workshops and lectures based on her books, the Dare to Dream philosophy, and her unconventional approaches to realizing the dream. Not satisfied to simply teach the principles, she's keeping an open diary, Diary of a Dreamer, as she dares to pursue her own dreams of doing a 50-state college speaking tour and producing the documentary, I Dare to Dream. Her books include: Dare to Dream: A Dreamer's Manifesto (Unapologetic Press), I Am Beautiful: The Confidence to Pursue My Dreams (Unapologetic Press), Birth Your Dream (Unapologetic Press) and God Is My Business Coach: The Dreamer's Manual (Unapologetic Press).
