How far would you go for your advocacies? Are you helping your community with your own good, small deeds, or are you creating grand scale efforts in social activism?  The new book and memoir entitled The Miracle on Cooper Street: Lessons from an Inner City by Gloria Bonilla-Santiago, PhD, is a fine example for students and educators. The book reminds us that no matter where you come from, no matter the smallest chance you have, you can make a difference if you are devoted enough, if you work hard enough, and if you stand up hard enough for what you believe in.

Today, LEAP Academy University Charter School is a place that holds miracles every day. There, lesser privileged students are provided with quality education—thanks to the advocacy of author and school founder Gloria Bonilla-Santiago, PhD. The book is the author’s story of how she transformed her life from a once underprivileged child living in Puerto Rico, to a high-ranking, well-respected woman of education. She tells of her institution’s vast accomplishments despite its location in a poor and crime-stricken city, Camden, New Jersey. This book tells about the sowed seeds of persistent dedication, relentless survival and the gaining of a profound respect in a world where often times, racial prejudices can get in the way of success and recognition. It is a book that carries the heart of public service and the fighting for important values in spite of life’s greatest setbacks.

This book is a book for my family, friends, educators and all those who need the kind advice and true-to-life success stories from a person who once came from a lower-class background. This book is my journey and I have stood up, lead, and succeeded,” states the author.

An inspiring, engrossing journey about creating an opportunity when seemingly no opportunity is there, this is a must-read book offering much wisdom and experience for many educators and readers. It speaks about the value of educational excellence and community togetherness.
