Show Notes

Carline Crevecoeur  is here to share why she wrote her memoirs and teach us some lessons along the way. I think you're going to like this awe-inspiring, resilient person.
Carline is a Haitian American obstetrician, gynecologist, and now also an author. She immigrated to the US at the age of 5 and was raised in Brooklyn, New York, where she went into the medical field. After  20 years of medical service in New York and Pennsylvania, she gave up her career to raise and homeschool her five children. Carline was diagnosed with colon cancer and given 36 months to live. Eight years later, she's still very much alive. Following that battle, and now that her children are adults, she decided to write her memoir titled, Pressure Makes Diamonds: a journey from Homeschooling to the Ivy League - A Parenting Story. She is not only an author now but also the first black woman elected to a seat on the State College Area School District of Pennsylvania. 
Let's enjoy her story.
