Teenage author releases children’s book about diversity and self-acceptance

The book reveals how to embrace and acknowledge individual differences

Grayslake, IL –
Alexis Pascascio, a prolific writer, is happy to announce her debut book titled “I Am Me”. This children’s book is based on actual situations that occurred while attending elementary school.

Alexis Pascascio got the inspiration to write this amazing piece after revisiting the journals that were kept about her personal experiences with attending a school with a predominantly white population and having to deal with children’s cruelty. It would take some time but Alexis was presented a way to navigate through those negative experiences and at the same time elevate her self-confidence.

Alexis Pascascio said, “Often times when children are different, they become the target of others. This can have a horrible impact on self-esteem and self-confidence. In this case, my difference was race, however, it can be any difference such as a disability, stature, or even religion that causes you to standout. It is my hope that through writing I Am Me I can assist other kids in navigating through some rough times and at the same time encourage the celebration of diversity to start while children are very young.”

Do you want to increase your kid’s self-confidence and self-esteem? Then this is the book your children need to help build self-esteem and assist them in overcoming peer pressures or negative influences from other kids. It not only tells a story but also includes discussion questions to help educators and parents have conversations with children about diversity and inclusion. Written on a child’s level it clearly addresses racial diversity and how people should embrace and acknowledge their differences.
