I Shine as Bright as a Firefly

Growing up as a young Punjabi girl, I did not know where I stood in this world. Just like adults, children have their own insecurities and have to learn to overcome issues with self-confidence and self-esteem. I wrote this book to give children the courage to embrace themselves exactly as they are and just as they were created—birthmarks, moles, and all. This book is to help your child push past any limitations they face within themselves right now, rather than waiting until adulthood, when most of us come to the realization that we, at birth, had everything within us that we needed to take on any activity, sport, or passion.
