From Book to Movement

Go for Yours, features a collection of stories about young people who overcame obstacles to follow their dreams and achieve their goals. Readers are introduced to stories like Jerome Boykin, who at the age of 23 started a million-dollar parking lot cleaning business after losing everything in Hurricane Katrina.

Erika's dream and vision of creating Go for Yours led her from living in her grandmother’s basement in Chicago, Illinois to thriving and living her best life in Los Angeles, California.

Her leap of faith has inspired many young people to create opportunities that will lead to living a life well beyond their imagination.
