Topic - Building Self-esteem and Positive Attitudes in the Lives of Children with Books. Listen to her session here: http://www.audioacrobat.com/sa/WTmw9ytf
Eartha S. Dunston has been writing since she was a college freshman. She first realized her love for writing when one of her best friends secretly entered her into his fraternity’s poetry slam. She anxiously shared her writings publicly for the first time and received an overwhelming standing ovation! It was a pivotal moment, and she knew in that instant she would one day write professionally.
Her educational background coupled with becoming a mom, inspired her to begin writing about issues that affect children such as positive self-image and losing a beloved family matriarch. Eartha is also researching and writing a resource book to aid in the effects of military deployment on small children.
She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Clinical Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Bachelor of Social Work from Alabama State University. Eartha enjoys traveling, encouraging others through life’s obstacles, reading and crafting stories in all genres.
