Dr Barbara Becker Holstein's Award Winning Selfie Films Build Positive Self Esteem To Empower Teens And Tweens

Dr. Holstein, a psychologist/filmmaker and originator of a unique Selfie Film concept, writes award-winning books, plays and produces short films that offer solutions to problems that impact today's teens and tweens

President Donald Trump, during a recent speech for Women's History Month, stated, "We want every daughter in America to grow up in a country where she can believe in herself, believe in her future, and follow her heart, and realize her dreams."

That message could be said to be the core message of Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's work. She delivers that core message through many channels including the production of her innovative, award winning 'selfie films'. The delivery is accomplished through her websites, books and charitable outreach efforts.

"In both of my films, 'The Truth, A Short Film' and 'Falling in Love, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film', the girl is able to find a pathway back to herself which gives her the energy, focus and stamina to go on successfully with her life," Dr. Holstein stated.  "In the first film, 'The Truth' she achieves this in part by putting a secret message to herself into her locket which she can then wear close to her heart.  In the second film 'Falling in Love' the girl finds a way to regain her sense of self and well-being through reaching deep inside of herself even when feeling miserable.  Getting in touch with herself gives her the strength to go on.

"The truth is in life, that unless we are able to savor our own talents, strengths and potential we are destined to be at the mercy of others.  Everyone has an unique set of talents and potential. When these are crushed or not developed the person suffers.  All of us have been stifled or put down at some point in growing up. But when it gets too much, for example when a kid is bullied, that person may end up so depressed that even suicide can take place.

"I was thrilled to see President Trump's remarks recently about how important it is for every girl in this country to grow up believing in herself and to follow her heart.

"Yes, we must all make efforts to protect and educate our children so that they grow up able to get in touch with what I call their 'Enchanted Selves'.  That is the part of us that responds to a chance to use our talents, strengths and potential and responds to encouragement, love, good education, opportunities, etc.  Yes, every child deserves to feel whole and able to follow her heart.

"JoJo Siwa, a You Tube star at age 13, is a good example of a girl following her heart.  As the New York Times Reports, she is ready to take on mean girls with 'hair bows, kind behavior and demure dress. 'I'm thirteen and I like being thirteen.'  JoJo is true to herself and she is a role model to young girls.  My 'girl' in both films, I also believe is a strong role model to girls, tweens and teens.  She has problems, ups and downs, moods, disappointments, and more, but she stays true to herself and that leads to solutions and happiness."

Holstein's short films have won numerous awards and accolades. 'The Truth - A Short Film' premiered at the Garden State Film Festival and its song, 'On The Edge of Something New' won the award as the best pop song of 2016. The short two minute film by Dr. Holstein, 'The Truth, A Short Short Film', premiered at FilmOneFest in July. The film was chosen as an Official Selection in the Chain Film Festival held in Manhattan on August 13, 2016. The film was also selected by the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival (JCITFF), and was shown on November 5, 2016 at the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival. 'The Truth - A Short Film' was officially selected for the Golden Door International Film Festival held in September 2016.  Recently, it was shown at The Grove Film Festival in Jersey City and on May 21, 2017, the shorter version will be shown at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey, where it is up for an award as Best Experimental Short Film. And to top it off, 'The Truth - A Short Film' was an official selection for the virtual Female Filmmakers Film Festival held on the web.  There was a public voting of favorite films and 'The Truth' came in 12th of 92 films.

The second film, 'Falling in Love, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film, is detailed in a new ebook: 'A Selfie Film - Falling In Love' by Dr. Holstein. This ebook details many of the issues and stories behind the creation of Dr. Holstein's "selfie films", which utilize cutting edge New Media technology. These films are Selfie Films assisted by a professional camera crew, resulting in an intensity and intimacy of performance. The topics and questions for discussion in the book can be used by a group of two, a parent and a child, or a group of hundreds as the universal subjects of growing up and handling tough issues are discussed. 

'Falling in Love' is was an official selection at the Brightside Tavern Film Festival in Jersey City in early March, nominated for several awards, including 'Best Experimental Film' and 'Best New Jersey Short'.  It came in second place for 'Best New Jersey Short'.  It will be shown again on May 21st at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park.  It is up for several awards, including 'Best Experimental Film' and 'Best New Concept in a Film'.

On March 29, 2017 Dr. Holstein attended for the sixth time, Author's Day at the Ocean Township Intermediate School where she presented film excerpts from both 'The Truth' and 'Falling in Love' to sixth graders.  They were able to watch at the same time, yet separately on their tablets. Comments included how genuine the girl's emotions were, how parents can't always be there to protect or understand, how hard it is to move to a new town, the real issues of having a crush, and suggestions as to how we can handle problems.

Dr. Holstein is also partnering with charitable organizations who focus on helping young girls overcome challenges. She allows both films to be used as fundraising tools.

Dr. Holstein requests that any verified charitable organization interested in raising funds contact her via email. She is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at drbarbara@enchantedself.com. Both the film and the ebook are available at http://www.payhip.com/drbholstein. All of her books are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and all other online retailers.

Immigration, Deportation And American Values - David Michael Palladino's Books Give Readers A Penetrating Look Into American Ideals

David Michael Palladino writes inspirational fiction. His works address important ideals and values. He utilizes engaging works of fiction to accomplish that goal.

Supporters of the agenda laid out by President Trump are likely to find that the works of David Michael Palladino will resonate strongly with them, as the "America First" message underlies everything he writes. The focus on American ideals has been lost. It is Palladino's mission to bring those values back into focus through his books.

President Trump has taken a number of firm actions to protect US citizens from illegal immigration. Some judges have attempted to block the travel ban. Trump vowed to fight the rulings in court. Only time will tell how all of this plays out.

Immigration and the deportation of illegal immigrants are issues that dominate the headlines of nearly every news organization in America. Cities and states are fighting the Federal government while protesters flood the streets. Immigration is an issue that has divided the country, the government and the people.

However the real issue here is not immigration - it is instead illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is the attempt to take advantage of the opportunity America offers; to circumvent the legal process. Times have changed and the processes have changed.

In the past for example, immigrants from Iron Curtain countries truly were fleeing and escaping by land through Yugoslavia into Italy and through Hungary into West Germany. Today it is possible to just jump on a plane and fly to the United States.

David Michael Palladino writes inspirational fiction. His books center around the engaging story of Adriana Corderu and her quest to obtain freedom by escaping the Iron Curtain. He teaches, through his works of fiction, important ideals and values. As a former U.S. Army Ranger, former High School Phys-Ed & Health Teacher and Coach, and founder of “Palladino Martial Arts”, he understands the significance of instilling these all-important ideals and values.

'Adriana Corderu - Quest for Freedom' is the first book in the series. During the first Cold War the world revolved around the conflict between the theologies of communism and democracy. The two main protagonists in this conflict were the United States in the West, and the Soviet Union in the East. As Eastern Bloc leaders began to tighten restrictions in the lives of their people, commensurate with their increase in power, there began to emerge, in the East, a group of young people, hard and idealistic, adventurous and courageous. These would become the heroes of the movement of their time. These were the brave young souls who, with inspiration from President Reagan, began to break down the Iron Curtain. The escape from Soviet Communism and the quest for freedom is the theme of 'Quest for Freedom'. Set in the Cold War era, the book is the engaging story of Adriana Corderu and her quest to obtain freedom by escaping the Iron Curtain.

'Adriana Corderu - Western Odyssey' continues where the first book in the series left off. In the second book, readers will come to know a whole new cast of characters as Adriana continues her journey as she experiences the refugee camps of Italy and comes to know Italian culture with a new family even while under the yoke of the Romanian Securitate, which is still trying to abduct her and bring her back to Eastern Europe. Readers will go with her into the cauldron that was New York City where the only safe place to be was where the Italian Cosa Nostra ruled and will then experience the wonder of the Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the rugged big-hearted people who live there.

'Quest for Freedom' has received rave reviews. One reviewer stated, "More native born Americans need to know this story and more importantly appreciate our country as she did." Another said, "The readers become engrossed immediately in Palladino's dynamic effervescent style."

David Palladino is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at inspirationalbookauthor@yahoo.com. 'Adriana Corderu, Quest for Freedom' is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Rosedog Books. More information, including samples of the book, is available at Palladino’s website at http://www.inspirationalbookauthor.com.
