I Can Find My Might has been specifically written for students, parents, and educators. Gabriella's personal experience creates a boots-on-the-ground approach that is nothing short of magical.

Does it ever go away? No, it doesn't... I'll never get used to the bad words. I'll never get used to the extreme meanness. What are they whispering? I'll continue to pretend not to care. But, boy, do I care...

Meet three-year-old Gabriella, adopted from Pakistan into a Dutch family when cross-cultural adoptions were unheard of. Short, brown-skinned, and with a lazy eye problem, Gabriella must learn how to survive in a strange new world where she is picked on for being different from her family and her school peers.

In this gripping part memoir and part self-help book for students, readers are invited to closely experience Gabriella's stormy childhood, which will encourage empathy while also helping students see the uniqueness they are each blessed with.

A perfect book--not only for the student who is feeling hopeless or helpless due to bullying at school, but also for those children who have bullying tendencies. In a revelatory way, author and kindness activist Gabriella explains how both bullies and those being bullied are mirror images of each other and what children should do with this knowledge.

With clear language and featuring stories from our present generation of students on issues ranging from social media to standing up for yourself and others, this is the ultimate practical resource for...

- Teachers looking to proactively counter bullying in the classroom
- Parents hoping to empower their at-risk child
- And for anyone looking for a disarming, heart-breaking, and inspiring story

In a nutshell, the following are Gabriella's keys for breaking free of intolerance and invisible constraints (for victims, bullies, and bystanders):

1. Become an Active Witness

2. Take Ownership of Your Uniqueness

3. Learn to Accept Yourself

4. Make Kindness Your Choice

Gabriella's latest book empowers students to find the courage to be themselves.

Teacher's workbook with discussion questions and activities coming soon.

Gabriella van Rij
YO PUEDO sacar fuerzas fue escrito específicamente para estudiantes, padres y educadores. La experiencia personal de Gabriella genera un enfoque enérgico que es simplemente mágico.

¿Alguna vez se te borra? No, nunca... Nunca me voy a acostumbrar a las malas palabras. Nunca me voy a acostumbrar a la maldad extrema. Siempre me voy a preguntar, “¿Qué están cuchicheando?” Seguiré fingiendo que no me importa. 

¡Pero vaya que sí me importa!

Conozca a Gabriella, una niña de tres años, que fue adoptada en Pakistán por una familia holandesa cuando la adopción intercultural era inaudita. De estatura baja y piel oscura, con un problema de ojo vago, Gabriella debe aprender a sobrevivir en un mundo nuevo y extraño en el que se burlan de ella por ser diferente a su familia y sus compañeros de clase.

En este poderoso relato, en parte autobiografía y en parte libro de autoayuda para estudiantes, se invita al lector a vivir de cerca la niñez tormentosa de Gabriella, que provocará la empatía a la vez que ayuda a los estudiantes a ver la singularidad con la que cada uno de ellos ha sido bendecido.

Un libro perfecto, no sólo para el estudiante que se siente impotente o sin esperanza debido al acoso escolar, sino también para los niños con tendencia a acosar. De forma reveladora, la escritora y activista de la bondad Gabriella explica cómo tanto los bullys como los que son acosados son un espejo el uno del otro, y qué deben hacer los niños con este conocimiento.

Con un lenguaje claro y relatos de nuestra generación actual de estudiantes, sobre temas que van desde las redes sociales hasta defenderse a uno mismo y a los demás, esta es una herramienta práctica fundamental para…

ŸProfesores que buscan combatir proactivamente el acoso escolar en las aulas ŸPadres que esperan empoderar a su hijo o hija en riesgo Y cualquiera que busca una historia sorprendente, desgarradora e inspiradora.

El último libro de Gabriella empodera a los estudiantes para encontrar la valentía para ser fieles a sí mismos.

Más de un tercio de todo el producto de la venta de YO PUEDO sacar fuerzas se destina a Gabriella’s Foundation.
