Real Talk: Athlete-Turned-Author Empowers Youth Through Speaking Engagements
Philadelphia, PA (February 27, 2013) -- Niema Golphin is the athlete-turned-author who wrote Discovering Your Greatness Now. As a motivational speaker and creator of the Life Preparatory Skills Program, she offers no false hope and promises no short cuts or easy solutions. This Philadelphia native shares insights that are based on personal experiences, the difficulties she herself has had to endure and the lessons she has learned along the way.
Golphin connects with students, many like herself from underserved inner-city communities, through sheer honesty. In middle schools, high schools, and universities along the East coast, Golphin delivers what she considers advice she herself wishes she had been told to better prepare her for life's challenges.
After what feels more like a candid conversation, audiences of as few as two or as many as thousands of attendees walk away understanding that despite whatever environment they are from or whatever struggle they may be facing, within them lies the potential to thrive and achieve their goals.
This program is based on the teachings in her book Discovering Your Greatness Now. An imprint of Growing Up Publishing, LLC, this reference guide teaches practical life skills to help young readers make better choices. Golphin's book encourages youth to look within, discover what drives them, and tap into their own strengths. By applying her principles, readers learn to believe in themselves and ultimately yield success. Discovering Your Greatness Now is available for purchase at www.niemagolphin.com and all major online retailers.
