What if I told you a college degree isn’t worth more than the paper it’s printed on if all you did to obtain it was go to class and get good grades?

I have traveled across the country to New York, Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Oakland and beyond to interview over 100 college students and alumni to create the THIS IS WHY documentary.  The film showcases what several successful college graduates learned in the last fifteen years, and how their endeavors outside of the classroom added to their success. The documentary is a companion to the book series.

When people think about college, they often focus on the degree they are working toward and neglect the other aspects of the college experience. This book will not only prepare future college students for life-changing events, but it will also give actual real life examples of people who have been there and done what new students are preparing to accomplish.  I want them to “Learn from me …learn from us.” I want our young adults to not just be successful in the classroom, but also outside of the classroom by successfully developing leadership skills and igniting a fire for passion and motivation.

THIS IS WHY, the book series, is carefully compiled from the experiences and advice of recent students who are now successful graduates, business owners, teachers, doctors and lawyers. It’s a how-to guide to successfully take full advantage of the college experience by serving as a learning tool to excel outside the classroom, providing information that you can learn from and apply today. My NEW FACE method for success proves there is more to college than just going to class. When you graduate OUTSIDE of the classroom too, you will be more successful.

I want everyone to consider college from a new perspective, using a different viewpoint. Consider all the things that happen outside of the classroom and how to use your college experience to its maximum potential. My methods will show you how to successfully take full advantage of the college experience. This book will serve as a learning tool to excel outside the classroom, learning from those who already did. Using my New Face Method for Success you will graduate with a degree in REAL LIFE STUDIES outside the classroom while simultaneously obtaining your degree in the classroom.


The topics covered in the first installment include:

  • Ways you can have college paid for before you graduate
  • Making the right choice for YOU
  • Balancing your schedule
  • Joining organizations
  • Branding yourself
  • Networking
  • And of course..FUN
