Meet Calandra 

Minister, Author, Music Composer, Playwriter, Scriptwriter and Mom

Meet Calandra?


Because of Calandra’s involvement in life, she is the perfect person to write a story of this magnitude. Her personal experiences have provided her with the expertise to write this narrative and, hopefully, many more. The development of the story and the growth of the characters are both interesting and thought-provoking.  Being the mother of a young daughter, she knows firsthand about the intricacies of life that are told through the main character. Hopefully, this story will be the first in a line of many more. The stories of young (black) girls are very rarely told in a way where familial support is provided and the village mentality is practiced. We need to hear more success stories where the exercise of faith and determination provide positive results in the lives of young people. This story doesn’t hide the ugly side of the struggle, but it opens the reader’s eyes to the fact that you cannot have success without it
