About the Author, Damon McDonald
“Iam Awesome, Who are you?” is a book that has come from my own journey to find the hero within. Growing up, I knew I didn’t fit the mold that life was putting me into. As a seven-year-old watching the stories in adventure travel shows I knew then, deep down, that I wanted to live the life of a Creative Adventurer.
In my twenties I jumped on my motorbike and left the city life, a life that had me trying to fit the mold of expectation. What was supposed to be a three-month break turned into a six-year two wheeled odyssey, listening to the stories of others while creating my own.

In a time long, long ago, a large and beautifully carved sculpture in the shape of an infinity symbol stood high on the edge of the lake. The sculpture celebrated two communities living together in harmony. It is still unknown what caused the battle between the Hill people and the Lake people, but the Storm of Storms appeared at the same time...

The Hero’s Journey is not a new concept. It is part of storytelling through all cultures over thousands of years. Joseph Campbell’s teachings show how the journey is actually us. While we always look to someone greater than ourselves to inspire us such as a mentor, the real journey is the journey we take within, to believe in who we can become that is the greatest challenge we will face.
We are all born Awesome but sometimes life can make us forget. Iam Awesome, Who are you? is the reminder we need to become the creator of our own journey.
To assist charities and businesses to help raise $1million for charities that benefit kids, we've created a Promo Pack, which is full of ideas, copy, graphics and logos to help spread the word.
