Author Lakyshia Shelton
What is my brand signature as an author?
I would have to say being a young mother of two sons and struggling to take care of them financially is who I am, a mother first. My main focus as a Author would be The Speaking Voices non-profit and center That I am trying to open for children is my main focus, that’s why I wrote the book called Lets Help Each Other *Can You Relate To These Stories*! I want to be the voice to speak for those who are too scared to speak for themselves. I want to open the center for victims, runaway, at risk youth, etc… We would give them somewhere to sleep that night while contacting their parents and necessary authorities to figure out what is going on and if the child should return to that home, etc… I am one of those victims who no one believed that has found her voice and speaking up. I am that person who wants to help change or save one life at a time, because one is better than none at all.
