Due to COVID-19, all my in-person events and training have been canceled until further notice. I’m currently only available for online activities. May you, your loved ones, and your team members stay safe during these difficult times. — Sylvia Melena
Education Breaks the Cycle of Poverty
I’m a first-generation American born to Mexican immigrants and raised in a low-income home. Thankfully, my parents knew that education had the power to break the cycle of poverty, and they were right.
So, I’m thrilled to be exhibiting my award-winning leadership book, Supportive Accountability: How to Inspire People and Improve Performance. My parents passed away before I published it, but I know they would be proud and satisfied to see the fruits of their faith, love, and encouragement.
To family members, educators, counselors, social services providers, and other support professionals: the work that you do to empower the next generation makes a difference!
