Beatrix S. Tambunan has a background in Human Resources with a MS degree from Suffolk University and Graduate Certificate from Harvard University. She currently lives in Boston with her husband and daughter. "An Eagle Named Canary" is her first children's book. Inspired by living in various parts of the world and enjoying the beauty of all cultures, Beatrix embraces diversity and encourages empowerment. "I started to write and illustrate children's books since I want to communicate positivity and empowerment to young children. I have to say my daughter, Sarah, really inspired me to write with excitement. My background is in Human Resources where I managed adults in a very corporate environment. Unfortunately, there is very little room for creativity and adults are immune to change. I finally took a break from a high strung work environment....I believe I found my passion.
