Since completing “Identity and Destiny for Amazing Kids,” my daughter Jasmyn has learned that it’s okay not to be perfect at EVERYTHING. We are simply not designed that way. She has learned that putting effort into the things that are her natural bent will enable her to create a future that she loves, not one she merely survives. She has also learned to be able to speak up for herself when she doesn’t like something. She is becoming a leader. She is realizing that she can be her own person. She doesn’t have to be like Mom or Dad or her friends and that’s ok! Her natural bent is arts/entertainment. She loves to dance, sing and write and has recently become a member of her school’s step team. She knows that she wants to do something that touches lives. She wants it to be in an arena that she loves. She also knows that traditionally, that industry is hard to crack into so she is finding creative ways to be able to do what she loves and turn it into a career later on in life .Porcha Carew
