Join us for the official launch of I Am NOT! by Rachel Boehm

Join us for the official launch of I Am NOT! by Rachel Boehm, in celebration of International Self-Esteem Day. I Am NOT! is a timely memoir that addresses age-old issues that continue to haunt youth, from bullying and body shaming to the often hidden emotional angst of disordered eating and body dysmorphia.

Meet Virginia based, whole-health coach and workplace wellness advocate Rachel Boehm. Rachel teaches at George Washington University in the Milken Institute School of Public Health.

Join via zoom for a special reading by the author, Q/A session, and raffle!

I Am NOT! – Short description

When enough of the world comes at you, telling you you’re nothing, you believe. You become what you believe. You become until the pain of becoming is too great to bear. You constantly ask yourself: What if I don’t know the answer? What if I’m wrong? What if they know I’m wrong? What if they laugh? What if fearing failure makes you fail? You’re faced with a choice. To stay. Or to change. Or to end. If you’re lucky, enough love begins seeping through, lighting a path to change.

This is the story of I Am NOT, a memoir of triumph over verbal and emotional abuse, bullying, disordered eating, and societal norms. A journey of self-deprecation and the promise of continued growth. An anecdotal warning of the challenges kids, teens, and adults still face today.

Available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Chapters/Indigo (Canada).

Releases for regular orders (and shipping on all orders, including pre-orders) on June 26, International Self-Esteem Day.
