Together We Stand

The vision of "Letters To Me" is to be a book series of real stories from real people just like you and me. These letters will share life lessons that were learned along the way in this journey we call LIFE. And just like life, these stories will elicit a variety of emotions from happiness and joy, to sadness and pain. Some of these stories will make you laugh, while others may make you cry. You might not relate to each and every story, but I am sure you will find one that speaks to you. You'll probably even know someone in your life who is going through some of the same things mentioned in the book. 

My hope is that by you getting involved and sharing your story or your lesson, someone picking up this book can learn from your mistakes, your wins, or lessons and implement it in their own lives. Imagine changing someone's life just by sharing your story. How powerful is that?

Our Mission

Our mission is to help inspire the youth and encourage them to speak out about their visions and dreams; to impress upon them the importance of mentorship; and to let them know we've been there before and we understand.

You Can Make a Change

Have you ever thought to yourself, "If only I could go back in time with the all the knowledge I know now, I would be a BEAST!" (Of course we all have, right?)

 "Letters To Me" is a collection of life lessons everyone wishes they knew when they were younger. The stories told are to inspire the youth to be "THAT BEAST" we all would have been if only we knew the things we know NOW!!
