It wasn’t something Sanan Malkadjian needed until she had to spend time in the hospital.
What she discovered were uplifting books for children. Now she’s written two and is busy sharing her message of positivity.
“I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called FM. Through the diagnosis and treatment process, I was inspired to write a book titled, be positive, which was also my blood type,” Malkadjian said.
Malkadjian said she realized there was a need for positive books for children going through medical conditions. So she self-published her book.
“Having been there and seeing every little sick child, it really put things into perspective,” Malkadjian said.
She wanted to help children going through hardships and remind them that the sun will always shine. This was her message when she began visiting classrooms and hospitals.
“The message of positivity was shared everywhere I went, especially to younger people who find it hard to understand this. It’s not always a bad life. It could just be a bad day,” Malkadjian said.
Malkadjian has just launched his second positive children’s book, My positive coloring book, where children can express themselves creatively.
“It’s the same storyline as the first book, just different illustrations and with extra pages for kids to color and interact with. Life isn’t fair, it has its twists, and you have to find the silver lining one way or another,” Malkadjian said.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Children of Armenia Fund (COAF). Those interested in helping COAF or learning more about the organization can click here.
