In You Got This! Maya shares her incredible journey to becoming an artist, designer, philanthropist, and business owner. She provides a creative blueprint for teens and young adults, along with the tools she used to build an authentic, exciting, and connected life, and offers creative prompts for cultivating success. So let your creativity and passion flow freely and watch as your world transforms -- it all starts with you!
"Divided into three sections, this title shares her blueprint for success with an emphasis on self-esteem, ambition, and role models. The tone is fun and conversational as Penn identifies common modes of thinking (for example, the flip-flopper), with suggested activities for those feeling unfocused or overwhelmed (dream boards, idea books). The strength of this title is in the discussion of online safety and awareness of one's digital footprint and in Penn's interviews with other young go-getters at the end of the book....A valuable title for young adults interested in examples of teen involvement in volunteer movements or looking for personal inspiration." — Cynde Suite, School Library Journal
