Dream Big & Imagine the What If
Term: 1 Year: 2022
Proud Gamilaroi woman and educational leader, Kylie Captain has always dreamt of becoming an author. In November 2021, she published her first book titled Dream Big and Imagine the What If. Within the first 24 hours, she became an Amazon No#1 bestseller.
In this genuine recount of her own life challenges, Kylie shares how connecting to culture and finding a teacher who believed in her changed her life. From breaking the cycle and facing fear to using the power of education and visualisation, you will be left feeling inspired and motivated to take on life’s challenges with confidence and courage.
Part narrative, part motivational and educational, her book encourages you to reflect on where you are and where you want to be and importantly, what you are prepared to do to achieve your dreams and goals. You will learn, as Kylie did, that it doesn’t matter how many times you choose the wrong path; there is always a chance to redirect.
Kylie shares her pedagogical knowledge as an inspiring educational leader to educate, motivate and inspire. You’ll be taken on an eye-opening journey of injustice, identity, connecting to Country, truth-telling and hope.
Kylie has teamed up with Dharawal man, Michael Fardon, to create the artwork featured on her book cover and accompanying journal. Kylie’s inspirational journal is full of hand-drawn images and inspiring quotes that illuminate strength and hope.
If you are looking for some guidance or are an educator looking for a fresh perspective on pedagogy and truth-telling about Australian history, this book is for you.
