Finding your superpower within
Dominique Jordan Turner
Dominique Jordan Turner is the President & CEO of Chicago Scholars, a nonprofit organization that supports aspiring leaders to become the first in their family to graduate from college. She is one of 20 inaugural Obama Fellows selected among 20,000 applications from 191 different countries. She is also the founder and face of Speak On It, a video blog all about leadership, success and the art of winning. Having been the first in her family to also graduate from college, she believes that those who dare to be the first have unique strengths or superpowers that the world needs.
There are hundreds of programs across the country that exist to help students navigate being the first in their families to get to and through college. This same level of support is needed as those same students transition from college into the world of work. Similar to college feeling like a culture shock, the work environment is even more foreign. The rules for success are often unwritten and not taught in college. This book uncovers some of the most important lessons that first generation college graduates need in order to be successful at work. It is a must have for all recent college grads!
The target audience will likely be majority black or latino ages 18-29. Readers may be part of college access programs like Chicago Scholars or members of multicultural organizations on college campuses across the country.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.

99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
LSDdesign is certainly one of the best designers that I have worked with. Very responsive, intuitive, attention to detail, thoughtful attitude, and easy to work with is what really makes the difference. This designer is very talented. Great business etiquette. I highly recommend LSDdesign.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
