Let Vera DARE you to DREAM

From the Publisher of The Urban Connection, Life Empowerment Strategist Vera Cornish now brings you
Dare To Dream With Vera Cornish. This kaleidoscope of stories of Vera’s journey was created to inspire, motivate and be a catalyst for being crazy enough to believe that all things are possible.

Imagine a life that begins with Fast Black, June Bug and a pink Cadillac in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, leading to the mountains of Pennsylvania and a little further down the road you’re working on a college campus in the President’s office!

From backstage passes to marvelous music festivals to incredible relationships, the journey continues.

As our team has prepared for the programs taking place in 2017 there have been certain themes or thoughts that have permeated our mindset. These include:

The Power of Exposure

Life changing decisions are often made by the experiences to which we are exposed. I love when the complex is made simple and then in the simplicity of understanding we apply it to the complex. Exposure, the first day I stepped on wall to wall carpeting. Wow! The  first day I walked on campus at Penn State University Park. Ask yourself, “what were the experiences that were catalysts to the  most significant decisions you have made in terms of your career and lifestyle.” Understand there is power in exposure!

The Power Of Yes!

The door of opportunity has opened and something is holding you back! Why? Ask yourself what is the impact of saying, “yes” to
your hopes, your dreams, and your career aspirations? I invite you to engage in conversations with the corporations attending the
Access & Opportunity Career Fair. There is power in saying, “yes” to exploring the infinite possibilities!

The Freedom of NO!

There are times in this journey called life when a firm steadfast No is the best answer! For your consideration saying No to inaction,
No to procrastination, No to fear of success, No to stagnation, No to people and projects that do not support your greater good. Give
yourself the freedom of no!

Finding Your Voice

2017 is the year to find your voice! In a world that competes for sound recognition it is easy to go silent and lose your voice. You are
uniquely and wonderfully made. So, let’s commit to finding our voices of leadership, of passion of the artistic expression, creativity
and more!
