Meet Isa

Isa Peguero Friedman is the award-winning author of the I AM Teen Becoming book series. Isa’s book I AM Teen Becoming A Guided Journal of Self-Discovery & Self-Leadership received a Living Now Book Award and is recognized as one of the nation’s best journal books for young women. She has turned her lifelong passion to mentor teen girls and young women into her legacy project. Her goal is to inspire, challenge and make a positive impact on teen girls of all social and economic backgrounds, guiding them to live authentically through self-discovery, authenticity, and self-leadership.

As a mother, wife, and stepmom she understands the impact a parent makes on their teen’s life every day and that others might not have the same opportunities to feel connected to the world, their families, or themselves.

After countless interactions with teen girls of all races, social and economic backgrounds, there was one thing they all shared; a sense of confusion about their individual purpose, self and sense of belonging. The constant message from these teens, “I can’t figure out who I am and where I fit in,” motivated her to do more.

Isa’s personal message and relatable style delivers a positive impact that brings clarity and simplifies the journey of self-awareness and self-leadership guiding teen girls to navigate daily as they grow and discover that everyone already has their secret recipe to self and happiness; they just need to be guided in the right direction to uncover their purpose and live their most authentic, best life.
