Justin Conigliaro has spent most of his adult life working in youth programming. These programs have led him to cross paths with well over a thousand young people (between the ages of 5-24) across New York City. His level of experience with this wide age range has led him to a very important conclusion. A lot of our young people (regardless of how old they are) have a very common theme in their personalities, which is that they lack confidence, self-worth and knowledge of who they truly are. With his writings Conigliaro opens the minds of his young readers and helps them to trust their choices, admire what makes them different, and to truly believe in themselves.
