Tip #62 ❤💡
Be a teacher at least once in your life!
Through my job @hobokenlibrary I have been able to teach @true_mentors kids creativity through writing and acting for the past 4 months. Today the head hancho herself, Katie Eades, gave me flowers as a thank you and I couldn't be more honored to recieve them! I would strongly recommend teaching someone something you love, because honestly these past few months have been an amazing experience! Can't wait to see whats in store next school year! (Check out my kiddies in the next pic!)
The mission of the Lady Memoir Book Club is “We read and discuss books where notable women tell their own stories.” The #metoo and #timesup movements, and stories of sexual predators in high places have made the need for reading and hearing Women’s stories more urgent and necessary. Lauren Duca is an excellent follow on Twitter, and her journalism at @teenvogue is stellar and worth checking out.
Our September 2017 Lady Memoirist @mindykaling posted these cute photos of her book Why Not Me? in the real world. Which is your favorite? I love the one with croissants. Also, should we read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
#Hoboken Public Library - a beloved resource to the community since 1884 (in this building since 1897). Nowadays, the library hosts weekly children’s programs and special events in addition to sharing books/DVDs/etc. If you don’t have a library card yet, head on over to the #hobokenlibrary and get one today! ⠀
[NOTE: The library is closed Sunday 5/27 & Monday 5/28 for MDW]
What has Gabrielle Union (author of the November 2017 LMBC read We’re Going to Need More Wine 🍷) been up to? Check her out on Larry Wilmore’s podcast Black on the Air.🎙 Bonus: Did you know that Gabrielle played a key role in the famous “hoodies up” photo featuring members of the Miami Heat taken after Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012? ESPN’s 30 for 30 series tells that story. 👆🏻Link in bio. Hear Gabrielle at 13:10 and 25:30.
Have you seen this @nytimes article about two new pages in Anne Frank’s diary (the April 2018 pick) that had brown paper pasted over them? (👆🏻link in bio.) Is it right to share these pages now, which Anne may not have wanted to be seen?
The next meeting of the Lady Memoir Book Club will be Wednesday June 13 at 7 PM @littlecitybooks! 📚 This summer the LMBC will be dedicated to women who rock. See the next image for all three books we’re reading! 🌞

There will always be someone who underestimates your worth... but here is your #Monday reminder that YOU define your worth and your value. We’re excited to be hosting a workshop on May 10 with Stella Grizont (positive psychology expert and executive coach) on how to get the pay and recognition you deserve. More info / RSVP link in bio. ✨✨✨ #Repost @yessupply with @get_repost
There will always be someone who underestimates you. They are blind to your potential. They don’t believe in you. They put limitations on themselves, and their dreams, and they try to project their playing small onto you.
But they don’t define your future. You do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Focus on your dream. Your outcomes. Only you define what you can achieve.
Prove them wrong. ✨Do it for you. For your vision. For the people who need you. ♥️
