You Got This: Unleash Your Awesomeness, Find Your Path, and Change Your World by Maya S. Penn

You Got This: Unleash Your Awesomeness, Find Your Path, and Change Your World by Maya S. Penn



How many of you get asked all the time "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

Maya S. Penn, the author of this book, thinks that all those adults are asking you the wrong question. Instead, they should be asking you, "what do you want to be right now?"

Ms. Penn is 15 years old and has already been a business owner for 5 years. Her company, "Maya's Ideas" has been featured on TV and in national news stories -- she started sewing and selling headbands on Etsy and has now expanded into an empire of eco-friendly fashion where 10-20% of the profits go to charities. 

What does this have to do with you? Ms. Penn has written this book to help you turn the things you like to do, whether that's drawing, playing sports, sewing or something else, into a way to create something big and maybe start a business with it or even change the world. In You Got This, Ms. Penn has come up with simple steps to help you along the way. On top of that, it also features interviews with other people who have devoted their lives to making a difference, so this book is packed full of ideas to inspire you.

If you're looking for something big to do this summer, read You Got This, and you can get some ideas about how to turn your passion into action.
