Hi Akilah, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am truly a unique soul. I was born and raised in Oakland, CA. I have a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations. I have10 years experience in radio, television and public relations. Additionally, I have a Masters in Education and am currently working as a high school Administrator. My greatest accomplishment is raising my beautiful daughter. I self-published Beyond the Hurt under my publishing company Revision Publishing LLC in 2016 and I am currently supporting new authors on their self-publishing journey. On June 1st, I released my first children’s picture book, Potty-Training Day, co-authored with my daughter Ziana Washington, available now wherever books are sold. Additionally, on July 12th, I released, Self-Publishing Made Simple, an online self-publishing course, which is open for enrollment.
