Patricia Bochi's YOUR UPWARD JOURNEY, is Now Available
Passionate about people, Patricia Périssé Bochi's vision is to help others realize that no matter what their circumstances are in life, change from within is possible! She knows from personal experience that it is not the stumbling blocks and tragedies in life that define us but how we react to them. Your Upward Journey: It's Easier Than You Think (Middle River Press), is the inspiring story of Patricia's life experiences and the coping tools she developed that enabled her to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds in order to live a truly fulfilling life.
At age 15, Patricia broke her back in an automobile accident that left her a paraplegic. Since her career goal at that time was to be a classical ballerina, she learned at a very early and difficult stage in life that she would either have to reinvent herself or become a victim of her circumstances. The latter was not an option. Patricia got married at age 19, had two children, and graduated cum laude from law school. She became a solo practitioner almost nine years ago with only one client waiting in the wings, but today Patricia heads up a flourishing law firm and has become a respected writer and contender in the self-help genre.
Your Upward Journey, part memoir/part life manual, is unlike any other self-help book. It is not the work of a psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist writing from an outside point of view. It is a unique and compelling compilation of personal experiences and life-developed tools that can help anyone overcome obstacles, or wanting to make a radical change but not knowing where to begin. It offers rare insight that can be applied to literally any situation; a physical disadvantage, a negative experience, a life that's become stagnant, or one where a hidden personal barrier prevents a person from reaching their goals and dreams. The inspiring and motivating pearls of wisdom dotted throughout this book help readers find their true self and learn to look at life from a different perspective.
In conjunction with her book, Patricia Bochi plans to lead self-help seminars involving interactive audience participation that will energize attendees and ignite in them the courage and motivation necessary to change their way of thinking, be proud of who they are, and look at life in a more positive way.
Ms. Bochi obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the State University of New York and her Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law at Coral Gables, FL. She has served in a leadership capacity with The Disability-Diversity Initiative, a project of the Disability Independence Group (DIG), a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and serves on the Board for the Center of Independent Living of South Florida. She is fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
