PAULEANNA REID

Pauleanna Reid is a Canadian journalist, Amazon Best-Selling Author of fictional novel Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother, Motivational Speaker and CEO of New Girl On The Block. Making a name for herself nationally, Reid is crafting an empire built on her core principle which is to help young women (like herself) to recognize their value, pursue their passions and feel great about themselves mentally, emotionally and physically.

A survivor of teen bullying, abuse and mental illness, Pauleanna finally realized that it was literally a matter of health that she listen to her inner voice and pursue her dreams. Based on her own previous issues with self-esteem and silencing her desires, the young entrepreneur has set out to provide various resources, public speeches, workshops and mentorship to empower individuals to proceed without permission and fight for everything they love.

Through a whirlwind of inspirational lectures, round table discussions and media appearances (Rogers Television, MTV Canada, Global Television, ESSENCE Magazine), she positively influences, challenges and reconnects youth with their passions. A successful self-taught renaissance woman who breathes life into her passions every day, not only does Pauleanna illustrate versatility but proves that the secret to her success is in her ability to give more than what she takes from this world.

HER BEST SELLING BOOK

Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother

An Amazon bestseller and named a 2014 Top Summer Read by The Queen Latifah Show, Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother is my debut fiction novel. It is a coming-of-age story for any woman who has ever questioned her sexual maturity and readiness, stayed silent at a time when she should have spoken up or accepted treatment that was less than what she deserved.

Amanda Rowe Pauleanna is my mentor, I came to her in crisis. She turned out to be so much more than what she advertises. She is a friend, a confidant, and a cheerleader when you need her. She covers all the bases, and she holds you accountable, while others might let you fail. She is bold and strong.
