YOUR VOICE MATTERS: STAND UP, SPEAK OUT

Welcome!


I'm an author, speaker, and freelance journalist. My latest book, YOUR VOICE MATTERS: STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, amplifies some of today's leading young voices speaking out about gun control, climate change, bullying, immigration, racism, activism, LGBTQ rights, and the right to be their authentic selves.  

I felt compelled to write this young adult book to help you speak your own truth with greater power, confidence, and impact, whether you advocate for yourself, others, or a larger cause. It also includes inspiration and guidance from sage voices, like Michelle Obama, Princes Harry and William, Oprah Winfrey, and many others.    

I hope this book helps you find and use your own voice with great confidence, power, and impact. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

Warmly, Susan

"Every day, all around us, we see the consequences of silence manifest themselves in the form of discrimination, violence, genocide and war...I have four core principles posted on the board that sits in the front of my class...read critically, write consciously, speak clearly, tell your truth..." Clint Smith, Writer, Teacher. From TED Talk, "The Danger of Silence."
