A True Story about Following Dreams and Living Them
Rosalie H. Contino PHD inspires the average dreamer to pursue with a burning heart
“We all have dreams in our life of what we want to be when we grow up. Our parents have other ideas. It took to the age of 40 and working with Junior High kids that I was able to return to school to be a designer, a writer and playwright,”
Have you ever had a childhood dream or teenage aspiration that you’ve chosen to forego? Not because it wasn’t good enough, but that it was simply not practical or favored at the time? Do you ever reconcile with those dreams and tell yourself, “One day, I will make it a reality.”
The new book, Born to Create by Rosalie H. Contino PHD is a true story of a woman, now writer, designer and playwright, whose life would have otherwise turned out not what her heart truly sought after, if not for relentless ambition and unending dedication. The autobiography follows Contino’s creative endeavors as she has blossomed into a full-fledged costume designer, costume historian, playwright, lecturer, and now author!
Readers will take pleasure, learning and taking inspiration as they delve into the mind and strategies of a sprightly dream chaser that has proven that if you really want to make things to happen, then start making it happen! Born to Create lifts up spirits and waters dried out aspirations of abandoned careers, hidden passions or future plans. Every reader of this book will soak in awe of this inspiring true-to-life story. The book details Contino’s transition from a well-loved teacher of 7th grade to a talented, bona fide artist, actualizing, even after 40 years, that true dedication and talent goes far.
