Unlimited Imagination Books is an independent book publishing start up by artist and author Kim Bell. UI Books has published 7 children’s books in 2019 which are all available on Amazon. Kim Bell created his own self publishing book company due to a struggling economy and the lack of livable wage job opportunities in America. He was fired from a job back in 2018 which may have been the best thing that ever happened, since it created a sense of urgency to find a way to make ends meet. Kim Bell used his imagination and started illustrating “ideations” from his sketch books from the past 7 years. After publishing his first book, “Mr. Chicken In the Kitchen” more ideas came to mind and more books were released. Bell has since created a merchandise line based around the Unlimited Imagination Books brand. All merchandise is available online. Thanks again for your support.

We were invited to the opening ceremony of the gym and took a deeper look into the story of Jordan. Not the Michael Jordan we all know that won titles and gold medals, but the “Jordan” before that Jordan. The Jordan that had math class and was known to crack a few jokes. The Jordan that eventually became the greatest player of all time

 

Arianna Alexander worked hard to graduate as a valedictorian with a 5.1 grade point average from Kenwood Academy. She additionally put a lot of effort into raking in over $3 million in scholarships. Now, she can go to college free from financial worries.

Congrats Arrianna!  Keep up the Good Work!

Screen Shot 2013-10-04 at 8.41.22 AM1. Steven Spielberg The prolific producer began an unofficial internship with Universal Studios when he was 17 years old. Spielberg continually snuck onto the studio lot (he wasn’t granted access) and networked with directors, even creating a short film that found its way into executives’ hands. Universal heads were so impressed that they offered him a seven-year contract. The rest is history.

2. Conan O’Brien Funnyman O’Brien discussed his time interning for Barney Frank at the House of Representatives during an “Inside the Actor’s Studio” episode. He says he didn’t pursue politics because, “I didn’t want to work my way up.”

3. Tom Hanks Before he was a movie star, Hanks was a college kid interning for the Great Lakes Theater Festival in Cleveland, Ohio. He obtained stage confidence and a wealth of theater production experience. The internship turned into a three-year gig … in which the actor would drop out of college (no longer needing formal theater education).

4. Oprah Winfrey The famed TV host got her start at WLAC-TV, a CBS affiliate in Nashville, Tenn. She did such a stellar job delivering the news that the program brought her on fulltime as an anchor-reporter. In true Oprah fashion, the philanthropist became the first African-American female news anchor.

5. Tom Ford Jay Z’s favorite designer studied architecture before taking a Parisian internship with Chloe. From there, Ford moved to Gucci where he became the line’s creative director. The dapper fashion icon opened a store in 2005 and has since created fragrances, cosmetics, accessories and clothing for his own label.

6. Brooke Shields, the child model and actress once had an internship at the San Diego Zoo.

7. John Krasinski Before he was Jim Halpert, Krasinski served as a script intern on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”!

8. Spike Lee The controversial director worked at Columbia Pictures after receiving a mass communications degree at Morehouse.

9. Betsey Johnson The cartwheeling designer was always into fashion. Case in point — Johnson interned with Mademoiselle magazine as a teen.

10. Jodie Foster Despite being an Academy Award-winning actress, Foster took on a summer internship at Esquire in 1982. It turns out the job’s 9-to-5 lifestyle wasn’t for her.

11. Chloe Sevigny Sevigny cultivated her chic roots in Manhattan, where she was taken on as a summer intern at Sassy magazine.

12. Lauren Conrad LC was already a reality TV household name from “Laguna Beach.” During filming of “The Hills,” she famously interned with Teen Vogue while attending FIDM. She’s since launched clothing lines, beauty websites and solidified herself as a fashion icon.

13. Anderson Cooper The Silver Fox interned with the CIA as a 19-year-old. Sounds pretty neat to us. However, Cooper didn’t think so. He called the experience “actually pretty bureaucratic and mundane,” and “by the end of the second summer, I realized it was not a place I wanted to work after college.”

14. Mindy Kaling Add Kaling to the list of comedians who got their start at “Late Night With Conan O’Brien.” Apparently she wasn’t the best intern …

15. Bill Gates The computer wiz and philanthropist had interests outside the tech world. Gates worked as a Congressional page at age 17.

16. Sean “Diddy” Combs was always a hustler. The media mogul begged rapper Heavy D to put him in contact with NYC’s Uptown Records. The company’s executive, Andrew Harrell, gave Diddy an internship (which he worked while also studying at Howard University in D.C.).

17. Steve Jobs Last but not least, the computer genius called Hewlett-Packard president William Hewlett to “ask for parts for a high school project.” Hewlett gave Jobs the necessary equipment as well as a summer internship with his company. This was where Jobs met Steve Wozniak.
