Think BIGGER, dream BIGGER, make GOALS, and actually ATTAIN them!”

— Anna Nyakana


To protect students, administrators, and our communities from the spread of COVID-19, I have postponed all in-person author visits and speaking engagements through August 2020. Thank you for you support and commitment to the Niyah Zuri series and it's mission.

My heart goes out to anyone that has been impacted (directly or indirectly) by this virus. May you, your families, and friends all stay safe!

 Peace & Love - Anna
