Even with Jahkil’s many accomplishments, he has experienced bullying first-hand. As a youth advocate and mentor, he decided to write “I Am” to encourage children to stay positive, encouraged and never doubt themselves or their abilities. He hopes that this book will inspire kids to be great no matter what comes their way.
“I Am” is a perfect read for classroom (virtual or in person) discussions and youth groups. “I Am” is geared toward helping kids implement values that can help with navigating bullying experiences and build a strong sense of self-worth. Complete with a self-affirmation exercise, this book is a creative display of how to have belief in oneself and to not be concerned with negative influences.
