My personal site Life’s Ultimate Test and profile has received the attention of the Presidential 2008 Obama campaign for striving to bring about change in an area of education that has been overlooked and left on the back burner. The result was accepting the honor of being an Ambassador of the state of Maine for the 2007-2008 Presidential Obama campaign yearbook.
In the year 2000 I was honored for my unselfish attitude as a self appointed community advocate. For my dedication and inspirational work, Adelphia Communications and Romance classics, a network from the American Movie Channel, had selected me to receive the "Cool Women of America Award" Only two were chosen from Maine, and I was one.
I have volunteered in three different school doing craft projects with the students on all holidays. Done special projects, along with sewing customs for plays. Volunteered in the head start program. Been a member of the parent-teacher group, doing many fund raisers for classroom needs , and school playground equipment.
I have also served as vice president of both the People's Action Committee and the Maine Association of Independent Neighborhoods, which deals with low income issues. Held office as Treasurer for Task force on Human needs, as well as second vice president of the American Legion Auxiliary. I was certified by Pine Tree Legal as a community advocate. Volunteered helping the elderly, and handicapped along with anyone in need of help that has crossed my path as I go through life. Started a group for young children in the community called "Tiny Tots" doing fund raisers for t-shirts, parties and a float for the parade to enrich the lives of young children. I also hold many certificates in different fields.
I went on to publish books and screenplays:

Doris Anne Beaulieu
NATIVE OF MAINE WRITES OF OLD-TIME FARM LIFE
SMITHFIELD, MAINE-MAINE author Doris Anne Beaulieu says her book, titled The Torment's of the Modest, Secluded Farm Life," ISBN: 1-58721-806-2 will bring you heartwarming laughter and tears to your eyes. Hopefully, you will gain a better and closer understanding of old country folks." It is "filled with down-home stories and humor for a true picture of how life in the country with only your eight siblings for playmates."
She describes the work as " an old time book from a girl in the back woods of Maine, who had a Guardian Angel to protect her and teach her about the REAL WORLD."
She explains, "The book is the true story of a young girl living a very modest, secluded country life in the 1950's, in the state of Maine. She starts by explaining how country folks live life year after year...Then she takes you though the hard young working years. And then how she was tormented mentally in all directions as she enters the real world. She just couldn't believe or understand the world and its language being raised as she was in the county going to a Catholic school."
She notes, "As more parents are choosing to home tutor their children for good reasons, I found myself compelled to write my true story to help parents understand the long lasting effects of a modest, sheltered upbringing before making the final decision...I only wish for parents to see how a child may be affected and how these issues also need to be addressed."
The book has also been put into screenplay format for producers.

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds
Some you would not want to move towards
A large unique animal is the alligator
