I'm almost finished writing my book on community college success (to be released by NorLights Press late Spring 2012) and as I've been writing I've been thinking about all the incredible and successful community college students who inspire me every day. I've been thinking about you.
My stories and my advice are weaved throughout the book; but as I've been writing I can't help but think of all of your stories and experiences and advice. This has never been about me because I am just one voice. Just one story. Representing so many incredibly stories, so many incredible voices, and so many talented students. And once students get their hands on my book I want them to know that I'm not the only one.
I want them to see how many other students have found success in community college and learn what they did to help them achieve their goals. I want them to get to know you and hear how you've succeeded.
You might not even think you have succeeded yet. But I bet if you read through my book survey you'll see that you have something to say, something to share. I promise you there is something in your life that will inspire others. And you've obviously succeeded in many ways because it is only successful college students who would take the time to read a blog like this.
I won't be able to use every story or comment in my book, but please know everything you share will play an important part in the success of others by informing and inspiring me with what you go through and what you've overcome and how you've succeeded.
So if you are willing to step out and share your story and advice to inspire all the students who will read my book then please read through my community college success book survey and answer the questions that resonate with you (you do not have to answer all the questions and in fact most of you will not need to.....even reading through and answering 1 question would be so helpful as your answer to that one question might appear in the book).
I think we need more community college students to speak out and share what they are doing to be successful. Please share your story often. So many students need you. And if you would be willing to share it in my book too I know my future readers will be forever grateful.
Click here to speak out, step up, and possibly get your story/advice in a book.
(please note the survey will close November 30, 2011 so be sure to get to it quickly). E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you so much!!! You guys are the best.
