Description

Most political origin stories have the same backbone. A bright young person starts reading the Washington Post in elementary school. She skips school to see a presidential candidate. In middle school, she canvasses door-to-door. The story can be intimidating. It reinforces the feeling that politics is a closed system: If you weren’t participating in debate club, the Young Democrats, and Model UN, you have no chance.

Karine Jean-Pierre’s story breaks the mold. In Moving Forward, she tells how she got involved, showing how politics can be accessible to anyone, no matter their background. In today’s political climate, the need for all of us to participate has never been more crucial. This audiobook is her call-to-arms for those who know that now is the time for us to act.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Intriguing Memoir

I have seen Jean-Pierre on television so decided to learn more about her by reading her recently published memoir.

Jean-Pierre was born in Martinique. Her parents were born and raised in Haiti. They immigrated to New York when she was young. She obtained a master’s degree in public administration from Columbia University. She had a tough life growing up, but she does not get bogged down in it. The book focuses on hard work and determination to reach her goals in life. I had the feeling the book was written for young people providing advice and encouragement. She encourages young people to seek a career in politics.

The book is ten hours and eight minutes. Karine Jean-Pierre does a good job narrating her own book.

Great read

Excellent and informative. Very motivational for young voters and young & old immigrants. The author and I have very similar upbringing from immigrant parents coming to this country for better opportunities. BRAVO and continued success from a fellow immigrant from Cambria Heights, Queens!!!
