Interview with +Stephanie Yuhas about how she first started making money as an artist - in 5th grade.
 
From Bullies to Business, Poverty to Publishing - How an ESL student used art as her voice.
I don't have much of an introduction because Stephanie Yuhas says it all so much better.  She is truly an inspiration and tells a powerful story about overcoming bullies by finding her own voice, a...

About the Book:
American Goulash is a story about a nerd girl jousting with her Transylvanian family on the battlefields of suburban New Jersey for a chance to grow up authentically awkward and live a so-called normal American life.

Whether casting off old-world wives’ tales or turning to art to cope with her immigrant family’s general zaniness, Stephanie valiantly finds her own way through adolescence in this heartwarming, hilarious soon-to-be classic

About the Author
Award-winning Stephanie Yuhas is a writer, producer, and professional goofball, with a BFA in animation from The University of the Arts. She lives near Philadelphia, where she and partner, Matt Conant, run Cinevore Studios.

Stephanie also the founder of Project Twenty1, a non-profit organization that runs the 21-Day Filmmaking Competition and Philadelphia Film & Animation Festival.

Advanced Praise:
“Talk about growing up in a pressure cooker! A poignant recipe for laughter and tears.”
—Gene (E.C.) Ayres, writer for The Smurfs and Dennis the Menace

“The bad thing about American Goulash is that you wish Stephanie Yuhas was sitting with you over coffee sharing these stories. Reading it is the next best thing. If you feel like an outsider, she is here to tell you in her touching and funny memoir that you’re not alone. Yuhas is a wonderful storyteller.”
—Mary Jo Pehl, actress/writer for Mystery Science Theater 3000

“Stephanie's entertaining and consistently hilarious memoir evokes the best of David Sedaris, by way of Freaks & Geeks - with a dash of Transylvania 6-5000 and a hint of lime.”
—Derek Dressler, Executive Producer for DreamWorks Animation; Emmy Award-winning writer of Disney's Mickey Mouse shorts

“American Goulash is a thoughtful and entertaining depiction of a first-generation American living amidst old-world sensibilities. With poise, intellect, and unrelenting cheer, Stephanie Yuhas paints negative life events into engaging life lessons. If you wonder how this young lady can be so well adjusted, remember that diamonds are born under pressure.”
—David Conant, executive director of WRTI public radio

“It's funny, sentimental, and just an all-around great read!”
—David Goodman, writer/reviewer for Geekadelphia

“What the hell is goulash?”
—James Rolfe, actor/director for Angry Video Game Nerd

Instead of a snarky comment about Columbus being a dick, I'm just going to propose we change it to Columbo Day. Everybody binge-watch the Peter Falk show/movie of your choice!
