“We want to raise our children so that they can take a sense of pleasure in both their own heritage and the diversity of others.” – Fred Rogers
“My parents were immigrants and Holocaust survivors. They did not speak of the terrible events they must have witnessed or the losses they endured, but instead, they taught the lessons of the Holocaust and a love of freedom and equality. They made success in education and goal setting into imperatives for me. Unfortunately, many children do not have an influencer to help them set high standards to aim for, and more importantly, guide them over the bumps in the road of life.”
Education is more than simply learning about facts and figures. Education is also about inspiring, building self-esteem and self-confidence, and ultimately helping children reach their full potential.
With this aim in mind, we have written the book “Diverse Achievers” to serve as a resource for parents, teachers, and children to learn about people of different races and ethnicities who have achieved success. Together with those to be published in the future, this book emphasizes the importance of perseverance and hard work as the building blocks of success. Along the way, we raise important questions about the challenges people face just because they are minorities and what they did to overcome those challenges. Our hope is to provide inspiration, encouragement, and guidance to children at a time in their lives when they need it most.
