About Anna: Through her first book, her speaking engagements, workshops, and more Anna works to spotlight representation and girl-empowerment in children's books and bring diversity to the classroom. She states, "Children should see a reflection of themselves in the books they read, my mission is to inspire them one adventure at a time." ⠀

Teen Summit, was featured in Indigo Blue's “Women’s Empowerment” podcast, and became a best seller with the second edition of “Niyah Zuri and The Pharaoh’s Throne” Follow along with Anna for the latest updates about her work like her upcoming feature on PopFusion TV.
