Finding Your Voice

Philo4Thought Mentoring community is pleased to present our December 2013 Young Professional of the Month! The goal of our monthly features is to provide positive, successful role models who will inspire the next generation of young professionals. Preliminary criteria for YPM candidates is their active engagement in an entrepreneurial initiative or career path. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin and part of a philanthropic, humanitarian or environmentally-conscious field. Their most essential qualifications are the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others.

Over the past few months, I’ve had the pleasure to chat with Annamarie Buonocore, Founder and Editor of Voices of Hellenism Literary Journal (, which is based in the San Francisco Bay Area on the West Coast and been in operation since 2011. Annamarie’s journey is about more than just choosing a career path; it’s about finding a voice… and lending that very opportunity to others. She is a girl with a Voice!
