What is the best way to discover one's true self? Contrary to many thinkers, perhaps one should not seek to be him or herself without first following the guidelines spelled out by Ms. Mazzuca. Her mentoring program for self discovery promises to change the path of your life journey.

Angie Mazzuca is a middle school English teacher in Pine City, Minnesota. She has been teaching English, coaching speech, and directing the All-School Play for the last three years. She has a passion for public speaking and is an active member of Toastmasters International. Besides public speaking, Angie is a writer. Both of these loves helped her to transition from teenage high school student, to college student, to professional adult. She continues to inspire and empower her students with public speaking and creative writing. In her free time, Angie enjoys reading, making bracelets, agate hunting, and ghost hunting.
