Many thanks to Deanna Martin-Osuagwu over at Jet Magazine for allowing me to share a few words on my experience exploring my ancestry and my inspiration for writing my children’s book. I’m too thrilled to be included amongst three other genealogy enthusiasts. As with any other part-time or full-time hobby/interest of mine, I always love encouraging others to join in on the fun. This one is likely my most rewarding personal and family related interest yet. You can read the article by clicking here.
Also, worth noting: Jet Magazine is giving away five (5) of my Isaac and the Bah Family Tree children’s books and five (5) Ancestry.com memberships with DNA test kits in two separate sweepstakes over on their giveaway page. Definitely worth entering for a chance to win one or the other!
Have a beautiful Black History Month!
You are invited to celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day at the Sarasota Children’s Garden next Saturday, April 13th from 2-3 PM. In addition to giving big bear hugs to our tree friends, I’ll be reading my book, Isaac and the Bah Family Tree. Additional details can be found in the flyer above. Hope to see you there!
Hot off the press and magazine newsstands! Look out for my Lean In story in the May edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. Words of gratitude can’t express how thankful I am to JC Ford and Cosmopolitan for giving me the opportunity to share my story in these glossy pages. Terrified by how my personal tale was going to come across, they pretty much hit it on the head or should I say knocked it out the park? I totally did set a curve ball goal for myself.
