The Gift of Persistence by Cynthia Brian


Every week, Express Yourself!™ will bring you a stimulating program based on a chapter from our award winning book Be the Star You Are!® for Teens.
‘Tis a lesson you should heed. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Edward Hickson
Two hosts who are currently attending Harvard join together for an exhilarating program celebrating the importance of perseverance.

Ryan and Henna-Harvard

Henna Hundal and Ryan Sim are not only hosts and reporters on Express Yourself!, but, they have taken their experiences from Express Yourself!™ to launch a new talk show on Harvard radio and, in addition, Henna spins as a DJ for a program of blues. They read a chapter by Cynthia Brian from Be the Star You Are!™ for TEENS which illustrates the importance of never quitting. Today’s guest, exuberant Kamil McFadden, a Disney star on “K.C. Undercover”, inspires listener with his dedication to perseverance despite the odds, his belief that it is critical to be kind to everyone, and his gratitude for his mom, family, friends, TV colleagues, and everyone who has been a ladder in his life. “Paralyze resistance with persistence.” -Woody Hayes
Never GIVE UP on your dreams!
