AUTHOR INTERVIEW 3

Anthony Mitchell

United States

52 years old

My name is Anthony Mitchell and author speaker, songwriter, poet, custom t-shirt and greeting card designer, and most importantly a man of God. I was born with a rare genetic condition known as hypohydrotic ectodermal dysplasia which left me without sweat glands which are totalled at 1 to 4 million located a majority on the bottom of our feet. My parents were told when I was a child by the doctors that I possibly wouldn’t live pass a teenager but kept me to the current age of 52 as he continues to bless me in praising his name with the gifts he’s blessed me with. My book „No Sweat” , Living Without Sweat Glands available on Amazon and a poetry book titled ” Faithfilled Thoughts Of Inspiration” coming down the pipe. I have unique testimonies that will show the world how God has a position in life for each of us. I pray you will take the time out of your schedule to allow God to use you and your platform to inspire the masses.
This Autobiography is of a young man born with a rare genetic condition known as HED or hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia where he tells his story of living without sweat glands taking you through the journey of his life challenges as well as achievements.
