Social media post from a proud parent:
This summer my daughter Jael had the AMAZING opportunity to do a paid writing internship with one of her favorite authors @authorlbanne
My eyes watered a bit when I saw my daughter write out “I will be someone’s favorite author.” #bestillmyheart
It was an exercise they did in one of her online sessions with LB Anne around mindset.
Jael has loved LB Anne’s Sheens Meyer series and when I found out LB was doing a teen summer internship I knew Jael would flourish in it. We were so excited when she got in.
Jael learned soo much about writing and publishing a book. She’s writing two fiction stories already & illustrating one. Jael will do great things! The Fabien family will be someone’s favorite author. I believe it! Thank you again @authorlbanne
