Learning differences advocate, leader, and national speaker are just a few words that describe young author, Jordan Ashley Greene. She is passionate about using her voice to speak up and help others, specifically kids with learning differences. She is on a mission to help the youth of today ‘embrace their differences.
At the age of 12, Jordan authored her first book, My Gift of Difference: 7 Steps to Embracing Your Learning Differences. Her own frustrating and sometimes discouraging journey with a diagnosis of her own learning difference caused her to do research. She discovered over 6.6 Million kids in the United States were experiencing challenges with some of type of learning difference. Jordan became inspired to write a book, and launch a campaign that would help other kids embrace their learning differences and anything that made them different. This book lead to Jordan speaking on stages to hundreds of youth across the country including- The National Urban League Youth Conference, The National Kaleidoscope Conference with the Girl Scouts (Heart of the South), The Career in Athletics Conference at Dillard University, National Festival of Praise with Ambassador Shabazz and shared the stage with Mayor of Louisville, KY Greg Fischer.
Jordan has published her second book, The Confidence Club. Her goal is to help girls across the world increase their confidence. Barnes and Noble in Collierville, TN has highlighted Jordan as a Teen author, and hosted a special book signing for her.
Her book can be found at Barnes & Noble (Collierville, TN), Amazon.com, New Albany Public library and at Innovative Therapy Solutions. A Pediatric Speech Therapy Clinic located in New York City.
