I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE I AM ME
I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE I AM ME was written and illustrated by Gresham, South Carolina native, Charlene M. Eaddy. Raised in a household with a father who is a pastor and a praying mother, religion and manners played a strong role in Eaddy’s upbringing. Eaddy aims to reach out to the children of today to extend positive motivation and encouragement while boosting their self-esteem through I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE I AM ME. This book was written to inspire the young leaders of the future to dream big and reach for the stars while using a simple key to life; have manners and respect for adults. Eaddy wants children to realize that they do not have to follow their friends, fads, or fashion styles. They can make a bigger mark in life by being themselves. The South Carolina native aims to let young people know that they can be proud of who they are, what they like, how they are shaped, and what they want to become. Through I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE I AM ME, Eaddy, desires that children will be proud of where they come from and use their background as a launch pad for success instead of a crutch for failure and bad choices.
