A happy and valued addition to the North Florida Poetry Hub membership base, Paula Veloso Babadi loves God, her family and words. She wrote her first poem, about hope, when she was eight. For many years her writing was dormant while she pursued a career in the health care industry after serving in the Navy Nurse Corps.  She is board Chairperson of the St. Johns Chapter of the Catholic Writers Guild (CWG), regular contributor to St. Joseph’s Reflections Magazine, past “Poet’s Voice” columnist and occasional guest writer for the Catholic Writers Guild blog.  Her book, "Everywhere Hope", captures life experiences and wraps them in a triple package of prose, poetry and pictures.  Her book can be found on Amazon. "Everyday Hope" awakens readers with uplifting and insightful stories and poems to rekindle the power and presence of hope in their daily lives. Eloquently written, this collection is a journey to be experienced more than once. Book #1 in the "Everywhere..." book series is disarmingly honest, emotionally accessible, and meant to be savored in all ages of life. Everywhere Hope delivers on its promise.
