There’s A Jewel In You (#TAJIY) is an anthology series of women sharing the truth of their stories as young mothers. Volume 1 was released on September 1, 2017 and volume 2 is scheduled to release in Spring 2018. We are looking for 12 women who became mothers between the ages of 31-21. We are applications now thru January 8th. If you would like to share your story, then this is the perfect opportunity! We will only be selecting 12 women for this project so don’t delay in submitting your application.
As a former teen mom myself at the age of 15, I remember what that journey feels and looks like. Even though these young ladies are not in the best of circumstances, they also need to be told that it’s not their end destiny. As a college graduate and business owner, I stand alongside every one who still believes in these young others. GREATER is in their future if they put in the work.
Here are the 2019 application requirements of the anthology:
- $75 registration fee (non-refundable) due upon acceptance.
- A professional headshot in PNG format. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
- Website (if you don’t have one then you have to agree to have one created prior to submitting your first draft.)
This is an amazing opportunity to become a published author or add another book to your resume. This movement is changing the lives of young mothers across the world. This project is no walk in the park. You will have to manage your time wisely and participate in the group discussions. Submit your application today at www.iamstillsomebody.com and we look forward to sharing your story with the world. Submission for TAJIY Volume 3 will open up in late 2018.

Are you ready to help transform the lives of young mothers?
