Big Question: How can I nurture my creative gifts?
Tererai Trent is a living example of what is possible. She grew up in Africa at a time when girls were not educated and expected to marry and have babies when they were still children themselves. She secretly taught herself to read from her brother’s school books. Her mother told her to write her dreams down and bury them and they will come true. Twenty years later those dreams are more than true. Dr. Trent is a scholar and a champion of women’s education. She has torn down barriers for girls and women not just in Africa but around the world. She joins us to help us nurture all our possibilities and shares her beautiful children’s book The Girl Who Buried Her Dreams in a Can.
