From the flap: "Each day I live, I want to be a day to give the best of me. I'm only one; but not alone. My finest day is yet unknown."
Deriving from Whitney Houston's 1988 Olympic opening song, Author Adam Harris was inspired by the above lyrics, coinciding with his roots as a Michigander and Michigan Wolverine, to name his third book, "One Michigan Moment in Time."
The book brings insight into how Harris cultivated into the man he is today, though he once questioned if he'd ever be. In his own words, Harris was, "not supposed to make it." As a high school student, he wondered, how do I get to Michigan, with about a 2.7 GPA and 18 ACT?
In four years, he played and quit basketball at University of Michigan – Dearborn, participated in civic engagement, and community service; other organizations even recognized and molded their leadership models from Harris' example as a servant leader and activist. Reflecting on his pre-collegiate fears along with mid and post-collegiate successes, Harris attributes his tunnel vision mentality to mentors, colleagues and friends gained during his journey.
Not taking for granted the opportunity to pursue higher education, Harris has been on a continued mission to pay it forward through workshops, seminars, and books – like this one.
