Writing my children’s book, “Queenie” was bittersweet. It is a celebration of self-discovery and acceptance. Although Queenie strives to be her best, she is uncelebrated in her home. It isn’t until she stumbles upon the truth of her heritage does she realize just how valuable she is!
As a child, I knew I was different. I didn’t know why. I didn’t understand it and I didn’t want it. I wanted to be just like everyone else. It seemed the more I tried to blend into the background, the more I stood out.
It was a family member who saw my greatness. It intimidated them and instead of encouraging who I was, they attempted to dull my shine.
Has that ever happened to you?
Once I learned ‘whose’ I was, I was able to walk in who I am – unafraid, unashamed, and unapologetic.
