New Jersey, USA… Teen gender equality activist and athlete Dasia Edmond, who has already had huge success with autobiographies based on her dealing with her natural hair journey and another on how she broke barriers as the first girl to play for the Pop Warner football league, has released a coloring book which shot to several number one spots on Amazon’s bestseller lists.
14-year-old Edmond is the author of ‘Uniquely Made: Girls Don’t Play Football’ and ‘Hair Chronicles: The Struggles of Natural Hair”. In August of 2019, her ‘Color Explosion Activity Book’ hit the top spot in Amazon’s children’s self-esteem and self-respect books, children’s social situations books, papercrafts books.
“I enjoy coloring,” said Edmond. “I basically walked into a store to get coloring books and I was like ‘Ma, these are boring!’ My mom is the type who says if you don’t see it, you better create it so that’s just what I did. I decided to write some affirmations and come up with illustrations about my own life that I thought would inspire other girls.”
Affirmations encouraging readers to read, believe, dream and go after their goals are prominent in the book.
