Here I Belong

I have written and illustrated my first children’s book which I wrote for my daughter after encountering a real problem. I found it to be quite relevant and I saw that other families like mine are struggling with it so I decided that I want to make the book available for everyone and show them how I overcame the problem to give them courage and hope.
The book explores the story of Maya while she is searching for the answers to those and other questions concerning her cultural identity and belonging as well as the meaning of family. The book is filled with magic to appeal to the young readers while also emphasizing the importance of appreciating different cultures and helping children from mixed families accept their origin and appreciate their diversity.
