June 6, 2017
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?” T.S. Elliot One thing is certain in life- no matter who you are, where you are from, or how much money you make, you will face challenges. How you overcome them is another matter. Hosts Maria Wong and Brigitte Jia interview best selling author, Ellen Hopkins about her newest book, The You I’ve Never Known. Ellen shares a personal snippet of how the book was based on an event in her life. Writing two books a year, Ellen is a master storyteller, unafraid to shed light on issues that matter. Brigitte and Maria read The Gift of Challenges from Cynthia Brian’s book, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference to showcase the generational differences of challenges. In segment four, Katie Choo tackles the challenges of choosing a career-how do you find it, receive guidance, and defeat fear of failure. Don't shy away from challenges. Be motivated to be the star you are!
