Best-selling author, 15-year-old Jahkil Jackson returns with his second book Don’t Wait To Be Great which tells the story of Jahkil’s journey of being a student athlete and becoming one of the country’s top youth social entrepreneurs by creating Project I Am NFP to build awareness to homelessness. Don’t Wait To Be Great brings community service and entrepreneurship together to inspire and educate young readers on the importance of philanthropy and entrepreneurship. Don’t Wait To Be Great will mobilize youth to engage in efforts to achieve major social objectives, including employment creation, poverty reduction, inclusion and integration.
“I Am” is geared toward helping kids implement values that can help with navigating being bullied and build a strong sense of self-worth. Complete with a self-affirmation exercise, this book is a creative display of how to have belief in oneself and to not be concerned with negative influences.
