On writing for children:

“Creating art for kids has always been my passion. I love writing fun stories and adding to them with colorful pictures. I never grew out of reading and loving picture books, so they have always been a huge inspiration for me. Being able to inspire future generations with my art and stories brings me joy.”

What was the most valuable or memorable experience of AMPLIFY for you?

Being surrounded by authors and illustrators of color made this experience so inviting and inspiring. It was so affirming to hear about the industry with our experiences, identities, and challenges centered.
