You Are a Smart Girl (Paperback)
You Are a Smart Girl is a highly informative and transformational book that will help teenage girls face the challenges of our society and succeed in becoming all they can be. Author Serah Chava guides young women to make wise choices in the face of media influence, peer pressure, alcohol, drugs, sex, and early pregnancy. Ms. Serah stresses the need to set goals, learn respect, choose supportive friends, and identify good role models. Statistics show that seventy percent of teens between ages 15 to 19 are at a high risk of becoming pregnant and/or dropping out of school. You Are a Smart Girl addresses these issues with depth, compassion, and a strong sense of commitment to excellence. Every teenage girl has the potential to follow the right path. With loving guidance and trust in her own intelligence, she can become a "smart girl" and live a fruitful life. Ms. Serah, who lives in Houston, Texas, is a teacher, mentor and big sister. She is the founder of the Tuck Foundation, which is committed to helping teenage girls from all over the world succeed in life. With teen pregnancy on the rise, Ms. Serah decided to take the classroom to the community, where teachers can participate in mentoring and the creation of solid role models. Every girl is special; every girl is a winner.
