Michelle Kuei is a transition coach and an author of a new memoir call “Perfectly Normal: an immigrant’s story of making it in America” She works with clients experiencing life changes to overcome the fear for judgments by providing them with skills and inspirations they need to discover inner strength and beauty that allows them to be heard, seen and known. Her story is one of courage, determination, and vulnerability. But more importantly, it is about having the confidence to face fear in everyday life.

She allowed herself to accept her with unconditional love. She accepts herself for all the strength, beauty and flaws. She accepts she is not in the perfect hour-glass shape and she accepts her just the way she is no matter how others see her. There was always that part of her inside that wanted to be seen and to be heard. she lives to inspire and teach others to do the same. She has walked through the battle to be here with you and she came to give that light to you. Why? Because we do not have to fight this battle alone. Check out her website:

Sharing a powerful message through music with Estelle California

Estelle California is a singer/songwriter born in France. She started playing the piano when she was 5 years old and went on to study saxophone. Later, she became an avid dancer and was formally trained in opera. Her current life is a far cry from her childhood growing up in France, where she suffered physical and mental abuse and lived in an environment where she saw many people being discriminated against. In 2013, Estelle moved to Oakland, CA, where she felt drawn to the diverse and respectful community. Her love for the state of California and its people led her to change her artist name. As a musician, Estelle draws inspiration from artists like Nina Simone. Her lyrics offer an overall message of hope and gratitude. Check out her facebook page:
