Hi! I'm Josie, and my biggest goal in life is to have a positive impact on the lives of others. I want my life to be dedicated to making the world a better place! I recently published my book, Buds to Blossoms, (Available on Amazon!) to help young girls build their confidence. Buds to Blossoms is a book of quotations, all about flowers, and journaling prompts that discuss positive attitudes, overcoming adversity, setting goals, and self love. Since I'm also a licensed cosmetologist I included simple, at home beaty how-to's, to give girls an opportunity to bond with the positive role models in their life and open up important conversations! In the fall I'll be a sophmore at Kent State University studying Early Childhood Education! Through volunteering in elementary schools, I found my passion in working with children and dream of having my own kindergarten classroom in the future! I want to pass on my love of learning to future generations, inspire my students to push themselves, reach their full potential, chase their dreams, and give them a great first year of school to set a precedent of success!
