About the Book

Imagine the person you were at age 10 before you started focusing on what other people thought or wanted. You were likely focused on your own passions and interests. You were probably curious, open, honest, direct, hopeful, fearless and eager for others to engage in your world. Think about how this changed as you approached your teens. The world expected you to adapt and change to fit certain roles. Now you may put others’ expectations, demands and desires above your own. The strong sense of self you once held might feel like it’s fading. You may believe you are not enough or will never measure up to today’s standards of perfection. This is not uncommon, and you are not alone.

Confidence is the answer. It has the power to transform all areas of your life, from academics to athletics to relationships. And building self-love, self-trust and self-security is the key to strengthening your self-esteem. Making the shift is easier than you think. In “UConfidence,” author and academic advisor Kellie O’Callaghan shares her expertise from more than two decades of helping high school and college students improve their confidence. This book includes proven resources she developed to support thousands of young adults as they prepare for and conquer standardized tests, college admission essays and applications, and achieve success.

“UConfidence” provides dozens of examples and easily digestible chapters designed to help you break out of thought patterns that are holding you back. Kellie helps you accept who and where you are right now, and she trains you to build the confidence to reach your goals. Above all, she demonstrates that you are more than enough, encourages you to let go of perfect, and gives you tools to live a life you are proud of.
