“I first met Lisa Ahn at Cushing Academy in the Summer of 2013. I was in the College Prep Summer Session at the school, and Lisa was a guest instructor for my English class. After class, she pulled me to the side and told me how impressed she was with my material. I never felt comfortable writing, and I always felt my writing was mediocre and full of grammatical errors, but she reassured me that I was very talented and that I should keep writing. Over the years, we have stayed in contact and she continues to inspire me. She has helped me be structured with my writing and descriptive language. Her words of encouragement and affirmation have really helped me get through some very tough times. I still think about what she said about my writing, and I hope that one day, I do write something, and publish it. I know she will be the first one to buy my book.”
