Dr. Cierrah Perrin, E.D., is an author and educator on a lifelong mission to empower, motivate, and inspire as many women as possible through the power of words. As a community leader, she strives to support initiatives that advocate the voice of women everywhere.
“I am a believer that women should have a voice. I am not trying to be a self-help guru, but I want my work to serve as sort of tool of motivation and transparency to address the complexities of womanhood. So, I hope that this book can serve as such.”
This is not Perrin’s first opportunity to pen her ideals and perspective on paper. She was a contributor in the book, Truth Be Told: Narratives from the Souls of Black Women.
“I was a contributing author to that great piece. That book had about 20 contributing authors, including myself.”
Dr. Perrin is deeply inspired by conversations she is had with her courageous sister, Clardia Perrin, who suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia, as well as, her personal shero and mother Shirley Yarber.
“I’m just a day-to-day regular working woman, but my thought was, we needed a conversational piece around, to address some of the things women go through, that don’t make us feel ashamed to discuss.”
She was also influenced by compassionate go-getters and visionaries, such as: Ursula Burns, Bozoma Saint John, Michelle Obama, and Marissa Mayer, to fellow women who are doing everything they can to not only get by in life, but thrive.
Outside of the writing world, Dr. Perrin works in the information technology sector as a Principal Business Architect.
“I have a doctoral degree in Organizational Leadership, which I utilize within the job sector of information technology, where I am a principal business architect. I focus on the strategy and development, throughout the implementation process of software. Currently, I work for a firm, where we do not own the software, however, my earlier company did own the software we developed, while, with my current employer, it is more aout the strategy and development part of the process now. More specifically, the software is developed and created for public sector transit or utility companies and others, where these projects are usually in the development stage anywhere from 2 to 5 years or more; costing millions of dollars, which also requires the implementation of certain strategies and processes, which is what I do.”
Perrin received her doctorate by the time she was 30 and graduated at the top of her class.
Her forthcoming book, Woman to Woman is available for pre-order.
“It will be available on Amazon and all other digital platforms on New Year’s Day. And right now anyone can pre-order it on my website (www.woman2womanbook.com.
Woman to Woman is designed to not just be read in one setting or a single day. My readers will see It’s set-up where I expound on subjects, in each chapter, where I offer my own personal perspective on how to deal with each topic.’
Perrin wrote the book with all types of women in mind.
“It’s not only for black women. It’s for women of races and backgrounds, which I purposefully wrote it that way, because any woman will be able to relate.”
