This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Overcoming Challenges

January, 27, 2016

This was by far the toughest video I have filmed. Even minutes beforehand, I didn’t know if I’d have the courage to make it, and as you will see, I had a very hard time just getting through it. I grew up with severe dyslexia and dysgraphia, which is something I’ve tried to hide most of my life. But in the past year I’ve repeatedly run into people facing similar challenges, so–as difficult as this is–I’m sharing my story. If it helps even one person, it will have been worth it.

I could have never made this video without my boyfriend, Tom. He filmed it, and all the while looked at me with such encouragement that I was able to keep going.
