From Nothing to New York.

They say there’s a “preparatory process before every promise” but how much does one person have to endure to reach their “destination?” Sacrifice. Loneliness. Brokenness. Homelessness. Death. Delay. Denial? From her first day of high school to her first summer in NYC, Cassondra Lenoir discovers 13 pillars for successful living.

Cassondra doesn’t know who she is, however what she does know is what she wants…and that’s fame and fortune. From a little girl she always desired to live in New York City and see her name in lights but she had no clue the cost she would have to pay to make this dream become her reality.

Life is all about the choices you make. With big dreams and the desire of living in an even bigger reality, one day at a time Cassondra decides to turn her Nothing into New York.

Whether you’re 14 or 48, you will find an empowering message of hope, perseverance and guidance on how you too can turn your “nothing” into “New York.” Join her on the journey.

A percentage of every book sale will go to the Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship. The first Cassondra Lenoir Scholarship will be awarded in Spring of 2016.  First generation college students in their senior year of high school will be eligible to apply for the essay-based scholarship contest.
