Changing the lives of children everywhere through literacy and education
United Nations World Literacy Task Force, Founding Member
In 2022, I was named to the United Nations World Literacy Task Force in partnership with the World Literacy Foundation. I am the youngest founding member and its first Youth Ambassador. Together we are partnering with JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Amazon, Microsoft, Harper Collins, and more to eradicate illiteracy globally by 2040.
World Literacy Ambassador
Every child, regardless of geographic location should have the opportunity to acquire literacy skills and books to reach their full potential. My work as an author, has afforded me the opportunity to take my advocacy for both literacy and education globally. As a World Literacy Ambassador, I partner with the World Literacy Foundation to provide books, monetary support, and resources to children around the globe.
From Texas to Somalia. From the Philippines to Australia, we're changing children's lives through literacy.
Every child deserves the opportunity to write the story they want to read. Founded on this principal, Authoring Life, is empowering children from around the globe through literacy resources, books, scholarships, and educational opportunities.
Since its creation in January of 2020, Authoring Life has awarded thousands of scholarship dollars, provided character education resources to 13 U.S. States and 17 countries around the globe, and more to see that every man, woman, and child regardless of geographic location has the opportunity to develop the literacy skills necessary to live the lives they want to live.
Reyna the Reading Raccoon
Inspired by my own experience of harnessing the magic of a book to overcome adversity to become my own hero, Reyna the Reading Raccoon was created to show children the importance of not only the power of a story, but encouraging them write the one they want to read.
The Reyna Reads Series is available internationally everywhere books are sold.
