I consider myself an advocate for the public. In this capacity, I understand how to empower and encourage the community.

For Eno Mondesir, empowerment starts with identifying the fears that cripple both individuals and communities.

Mondesir, a candidate to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, uses a series of anecdotes and reflections to outline the path to empowerment in his new book, “Freedom: From Fear to There” (published by AuthorHouse). A compilation of commentary, reflections and anecdotes, the book draws from Mondesir’s 15 years of experience as a public health official for the Boston Public Health Commission.

“I have remained involved in my community through volunteer opportunities and involvement with non-profits,” Mondesir says. “I consider myself an advocate for the public. In this capacity, I understand how to empower and encourage the community.”

The book, which features related graphs, charts and illustrations, outlines clear strategies for success, including decision-making and fear-reduction tactics. While some of Mondesir’s strategies come from his professional experience, others come from a more personal place.

“Growing up, my parents couldn’t afford to give us much but they always remained committed to providing us with a better education than they had,” Mondesir says. “I was able to succeed with the little that my parents could give me by using these strategies. My hope is that everyone reading this book is able to take my message and also achieve success.”
