Making A Difference: How Being Your Best Self Can Influence, Inspire, and Impel Change compiles lessons Dr. Pearson has learned as a Black, disabled, woman engineer and strategies she has employed to live an authentic life. From embracing who she is to using her background, identities, skills, and abilities to make a difference within her spheres of influence, Dr. Pearson takes readers on a reflective journey, using the stories from her personal and professional life that will help you to:
Avoid boxes created by others
Learn to be comfortably discontent
Find and use your voice
Not only get angry, but M.A.D.
Be mindful of how you treat others, even when it's difficult
Leave things better than you found them in all areas of life
Making A Difference is both a call to action and meditative guide to a more authentic life, generously explored in the lived experiences of a 25+ year educator, JEDI expert, and servant leader. Whether you personally relate to Dr. Pearson's stories or find yourself challenged to change, this book will motivate you to get involved and see yourself in the solution rather than on the sidelines.
"Think about the last 'place' you left. This could be a job, a relationship, a place of worship, or another situation. Did you leave it better than you found it? Did things end the way you wanted?" This compelling book by Dr. Yvette E. Pearson will empower you to be your best self so you can make a difference - a positive difference - in the ways only you can.
