She is a 13 years old author, illustrator, public speaker and Junior Board Memeber and CEO of and catalog.  Lansing, Michigan is her home town; where she lives with her mom, dad, brother and her two sisters. Nkiyasi has  been writing professionally for more than 3 years now and have matured from writing and drawing with pencils and crayons, to advancing on to professional modern technology using her computer. Currently 10 of her books have been published and she aspires to write many more.  Nkiyasi is an advocate for Obesity Awareness, Anti-Bullying and Literacy.

 Nkiyasi shared:
  One of my goals includes utilizing Written By Kids Publishing Company to provide a conduit for other young people to share their insight on youth related issues from a child’s perspective.  Writing and Speaking are my passion, and I plan on using these skills to share my motivational messages with the world. These messages can help open a dialogue on issues that can sometimes be difficult to discuss.
  I enjoy talking with young people between the ages of 10 and 17 about issues such as confidence, obesity and bullying. 

I am very proud of our young talent, but I hope she does her homework, because I will have some tough questions. Go to for a free account to get in the chat room. See you there!
