Empowering Stories on Navigating the Doctoral Process

In her first collaborative book, Sistah Hooded: Stories of Strength and Resilience on the Doctoral Journey, best-selling author Dr. Julie Clockston, LCSW, Cert Ed has put together a powerful group of mostly first-time authors who are leading practitioners and researchers in their respective fields of social work and education.

 “When deciding to earn a doctoral-level degree, the stakes are high. It is a major investment in time, effort, and money. The stories in this collaboration present a down-to-earth representation of life on the doctoral journey. Each author has shared a part of their heart to give the reader keen insight into the life of a doctoral learner and, more specifically, a Black woman on the journey. The stories deliver a unique form of transparency, encouragement, and support with one common theme: You can earn a doctoral degree despite marginalization, disability, or the heartbreaking challenges life may bring your way.” Dr. Clockston says, “the one requirement for each author was to provide the reader with tips called mentoring moments on some of the essential suggestions to help support encourage and gently guide the reader.”

In Dr. Clockston’s chapter titled Get Your Head Screwed On Straight, she gives a detailed account of the myriad of challenges she faced. Yet despite the face of adversity her instilled values surrounding empath for others, compassion, and education, she decided she was going to follow her daydreams with grit and determination. She went into an intentional action plan and hasn’t looked back yet. This book is her second publication but her first visionary collaboration. She is a sought-after Trainer, Motivational Speaker, and Life Pivot-Pilot.
