Right of Passage: Surviving Shame and Battling Bullies of All Ages
Mary A. Rauchenstein
I am the founder of Leadership Edge Solutions. As the sole proprietor, I hold the position of Chief Encouragement Officer. I earned a Bachelor of Arts from Grove City College and a Master of Arts from The Ohio State University. While I am passionate about shaping tomorrow’s leaders today, I am also passionate about raising awareness of the negative impact of bullying. My book is about my journey (having been bullied throughout various periods of my life). My desire is to give hope to even just one child, to prevent the needless act of suicide.
My book is about my journey from childhood through adulthood in battling bullies of all ages. The title is purposely spelled Right of Passage instead of Rite of Passage. Growing up and living life isn't just about the act of doing so, it's our God-given right. We have the right to a happy childhood and to be treated with respect as an adult. Sadly, most are not aware of the imprint that sustained bulling leaves behind. Shame is one of the most destructive of human emotions and victims of bullying not only endure shame, many experience effects similar to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. My book is intended to draw attention to the need to bring about an end to bullying by passing legislations in our states that will finally outlaw it.
My book was written for parents of children who have been bullied and for bully victims of all ages.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
My original design in my head, was the face of a child morphing into an adult. I want to illustrated the journey or passage from childhood to adulthood. I've included some images below. It could be a more subtle approach using hands, feet, footprints etc. I like the idea of the hands/arms reaching from childhood to adulthood. I wanted to focus on the victim, not the bully. I'd like to give the designer freedom in terms of font, color etc. I don't want the mood to be threatening or violent - more about the innocence of what should be if we experience our "right of passage". The approach could also be more abstract as long as it too abstract.
