Challenges when a child becomes a "super-star"

One of the most challenging things about my son being in the limelight is that I have to share him with the whole world. There are so many amazing things, though, that come along with this opportunity for him to share his talent with the world. I love the opportunity that I have, to have this platform--to be able to share my story even--to be able to use my pain to bless other people; to do good with it. I don't know that I would have ever had this opportunity if he wasn't in the position he's in. There are some challenges, but there are so many blessings and so many great things that come along with it.

Pattie Mallette

New York Times Best Selling Author, Award Winning Film Producer, & Inspirational Speaker

Pattie Mallette grew up in Stratford, Ontario overcoming unimaginable obstacles in the face of abuse, poverty and an unexpected teen pregnancy. She now uses her voice to inspire others as a bestselling author, producer and influential speaker. In 2012, Pattie published her memoir, Nowhere But Up (Revell), which became a New York Times bestseller within the first week of its release. As an executive producer she worked on “Crescendo,” a short film that received 11 international film festival honors prior to its premier in February 2013. Proceeds of “Crescendo” are being used to support crisis pregnancy centers worldwide, a passion of Pattie’s that grew from her own experience. As a single parent at 18, Pattie was personally assisted by a center, which despite her difficult circumstances enabled her to be the best mother possible to her son, Justin. Continuing her desire to help others give voice to their own stories, Pattie became an executive producer of “Day One,” starring Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls). Set to release in winter 2013, the feature film is inspired by the true story behind the global movement To Write Love on Her Arms.

Pattie recently launched her foundation called Round 2, which seeks to offer a second chance to those who have been knocked down by providing assistance and resources to those in distress. Across all platforms, her authenticity and candidness are magnetic to adolescents and adults alike as she fearlessly brings to light her own wounds and addresses sensitive issues with wisdom and insight.
