The Color of My Skin

It's rare to find a teenager that has the aspirations to write and publish a book and it certainly wasn't my intentions. But God has his way of guiding His children in the direction that He wants us to go. Now, I can proudly say that I have authored two books and the third one will soon follow. Through my writing and speaking skills, it has helped better the lives of many of my peers and adults as well! The First book I wrote is entitled, The Piercing That Changed My Life! At the young age of 16 years old, I felt compelled to write after I had strayed away from my parental teachings.

Now available: My second Book is entitled, The Color of My Skin!

It's based on a true story about a young black teenage female (KeeKee) inspired to be a high school cheerleader at a predominantly white high school, in a predominantly white neighborhood. As a result of being in that environment, I had to constantly battle against the invisible forces of institutional racism. Many of my peers with lesser determination would have surrendered in defeat or at the very least, retreated to a silent state of discouragement. However, the real message of my book is not to dwell on racism, institutionalized or not, but to elevate the victories over the struggles and obstacles that I faced to become one of the first black varsity cheerleaders at Sachse High, since the opening of its first public school in the early 1900's.
