John A. Andrews, screenwriter, producer, and author of several books, founded Teen Success in 2009. Its mission statement: To empower Teens in maximizing their full potential to be successful and contributing citizens in the world. As an author of books on relationships, personal development, and vivid engaging stories, John is sought after as a motivational speaker to address success principles to young adults.
John makes an impact in the lives of others because of his passion and commitment to make a difference in the world. Being a father of three sons propels John even more in his desire to see teens succeed. Andrews, a divorced dad of three sons ages 14, 12 and 10, was born in the Islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He grew up in a home of five sisters and three brothers. He recounts: “My parents were all about values: work hard, love God and never give up on dreams.”
Self educated, John developed an interest for music. Although lacking the formal education he later put his knowledge and passion to good use, moonlighting as a disc jockey in New York. This paved the way for further exploration in the entertainment world. In 1994 John caught the acting bug. Leaving the Big Apple for Hollywood over a decade ago not only put several national TV commercials under his belt but helped him to find his niche.
His passion for writing started in 2002, when he was denied the rights to a 1970’s classic film, which he so badly wanted to remake. In 2007, while etching two of his original screenplays, he published his first book “The 5 Steps to Changing Your Life” Currently he’s publishing his fifteenth volume, while working on empowering teens worldwide.
