Maya Moves to a New Country
Pearl Alimo is an award-winning author and founder. Pearl wears many hats as a military spouse, mother of three children, female founder, and entrepreneur.
I have moved with my family several times in the last 10 years to different parts of the US and to Japan. Each time, I count it all joy packing, unpacking, and relocating to a new place on military\ orders. We get to connect, meet new people, and see new places.
During COVID-19, I started writing and creating #icareboxes for military families as a way of giving back and paying it forward. I realized that I feel more fulfilled sharing my experience and supporting more military children and their families to grow, flourish, and thrive through my stories, books, and boxes. In 2021, I published my first award-winning book titled Growing Your Family: Learn How To Flourish and Thrive as a Military Spouse. My chief goal was to share something authentic, raw, and one that offers hope and actionable solutions to fellow military spouses and their families.
Maya Moves to a New Country is a story of hope, friendship, and adventure that aims to instill courage and a positive attitude in military children and really anyone when you have to embrace change. With support, Maya learns to grow, flourish, and thrive in her new country. She writes in her journal and resolves to share her story with other military children. Each day, my chief goal is to make an impact with my books, boxes, and business.
I see military life as a unique opportunity to make that impact wherever I go with my family. Military children are resilient, strong, and smart. They thrive wherever they are planted. This calls for all and sundry to support military children not only in April but every day!
