Vera DARES 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.
