40-Year Old Teacher Follows Her Own Dream, Becomes an Inspiration in her Book
Dr. Rosalie H. Contino encourages everyone to never give up on one’s dreams.
“Dreams don’t come with expiration dates. And it’s never too late to make them come true. So, never ever give up on what you want. Though you may never make it come true now, you can certainly hope that it will come true someday. You just need the courage to make it real,”
Dreamers – that’s what we all are. When we were kids, we have dreams we want to achieve. Unfortunately, not all of us are entitled to make it come true. Sometimes, life’s circumstances make it impossible to reach those dreams. But even so, we shouldn’t stop believing that someday, we will achieve them. Dr. Rosalie H. Contino never gave up on her dreams and now she’s willing to share her amazing journey of making them come true in her book entitled Born to Create.
The book is an inspirational autobiography that tells the story of Rosalie’s professional transition from being a successful seventh-grade English teacher to a newfound career in the arts. Although she’s already 40 years old, she made the bold decision to switch her career path and quench her passion to become an artist.
Since then, she has enjoyed her profession as a costume designer, costume historian, playwright and lecturer. And now, she wants to inspire others who are also on the verge of pursuing their ambitions. Moreover, she hopes that Born to Create will become a beacon of hope to those who think that it’s already too late to follow their passion.
“Dreams don’t come with expiration dates. And it’s never too late to make them come true. So, never ever give up on what you want. Though you may never make it come true now, you can certainly hope that it will come true someday. You just need the courage to make it real,” the author said.
Written in a comfortable and conversational style, Born to Create will entertain, inspire and encourage everyone reading it. Therefore, if you’re harboring unrealized ambitions in life, then it’s time to take action. And let’s begin it with the first step of finding a good inspiration like Rosalie and her book.
The book, Born to Create, will be featured in the 2015 Beijing International Book Fair. It will be held on August 26-30 at the China International Exhibition Center at Shunyi, China.
