I found this on my Facebook feed, which was written by a very dear friend and fellow author, Emma Tiebens, who snagged a copy of my book at my book signing party on September 26. I am so moved by what she had to say. Thank you, dear Emma for your kind words!

I spent the afternoon reading my good friend Jamie Borromeo’s book, “Young Educated and Broke – An Introduction to America’s New Poor” and I honestly couldn’t put this book down!

Jamie is an absolutely gifted writer who has a masterful ability to incorporate her factual research and merge it will real life experiences. I laughed, I cried, I empathized and was compelled to do something. I was awakened… I am blown away by her wisdom and conviction to take on and take part in this gargantuan responsibility in bringing awareness to one of the largest segment of our generation after the Baby Boomers – the Millennial Generation, those born from 1980-2000.

Her personal stories were witty, funny yet with a tremendous call from the heart to speak for the under served and couldn’t speak for themselves. Chapter 6 is powerful! It is everyone’s business to pay attention and do their part in mentoring Millennials, not just because they are the ones who are going to be the force that will lead the world into its next chapter, but because they are proactively asking for help. As the generations who were there before them, we have a responsibility to respond and heed their plea.

Thank you Jamie for “unleashing” and writing this book, that is now effecting change globally. Know that I am here to support you in whatever capacity I may serve to help Mentor your generation. Cheering you on!!! 

With Much Love and Blessings,

Emma Tiebens
