My Native Admission Statement: My goal is to empower and inspire other young people to find their true inner happiness, and live more authentic, meaningful lives. In my book “Wise Millennial: A Field Guide to Thriving in Modern Life” (self-help/memoir, 2019), I discuss the importance of detaching ourselves from the messed up values we downloaded from society and our parents, and developing a healthy, strong ‘sense of self’.
Your most difficult moment?
Writing a book (and being an entrepreneur generally) is a tedious process, filled with many unknowns. No one is there to do it for you; you have to provide your own answers to your own questions by being extremely resourceful. For me, writing was a very emotionally draining process. Many of the stories I tell (such as the day I lost my father) require re-hashing old memories and reliving them, in order to most accurately describe them to the reader. It’s exhausting.
