Inspiring young readers one book at a time.....Read Omar's inspiring story.
"My name is Omar, I am a teacher and I just recently became an author, publishing my first children’s book, The Lumpy Banana. I never could have imagined that my story, something that I created would be out there in the world for people to see and enjoy. I'm ecstatic!! This year, a lot has happened, but I always try to find the positive and make it work best for me. During Covid-19, I took the time to revamp myself and focus on things that I needed to change. I started writing more with my best friend, strengthened relationships, managed my finances, and was able to share my first-ever children's book to the world. As a black author, This is big for me. I have been blessed enough to live my life how I choose to live it. I am unbothered and unapologetic. What a fantastic feeling. As an educator, my message to future life setters is to never settle for less. The world is a very big place and it's up to you to take over and achieve all that you want to. I never want any of you to settle. Know your worth and demand your value! You are going to be big someday!! Trust in yourself and smile. I would like to share that this field of education is not easy. However, it comes with so many rewards. You get to help children reach their full potential on a daily basis. Even if it gets rough, knowing that you reached one child makes all the difference. The future is ours, so let's make it great!"
