Publication Date: March 26, 2015
Age Group: Young Adult
Inside a Young Soul by Nicole A. Schmidt is a poetry book as beautiful, heart-breaking, and invigorating as the very soul of a young girl. Teacher, turned author, Schmidt has compiled her best poems penned when she was just a young girl herself.
The poems written in this book discuss classic teenage themes such as sex, falling in love, feeling restless, and even inadequate. Its soul-stirring pages also include less discussed themes such as spirituality and intelligence.
A must have for young girls, Inside a Young Girl even includes space for young girls to write and draw how they relate to the poems.
Heart warming, bold and truly relate-able, Inside a Young Soul is for any and every young girl making her way through the complex world!
Hailing from Long Island, New York, Nicole A. Schmidt moved to Maryland to attend the University of Maryland-College Park. She received subsequent degrees and certifications from Notre Dame of Maryland University and Bowie State University respectively.
Schmidt (Schmidtty to her mentees) has taught high school English for the past seven years. She has always seen teaching as more than a job, more than a career; she views teaching as a divine calling. With that in mind, she became a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. whose core mission is to empower the community through education. As an educator, Nicole has had the pleasure of meeting special individuals. Her hope is that she was able to make a small impact on each of their lives as they have made a huge impact on hers.
