No one is ever too young to start a professional writing career. Nia Mya Reese (age 8) and Greta (age 11) are young writers who have put pen to paper to write about what they each believe to be important in their lives.
What began as a first grade class assignment soon turned into book for author Nia Mya. She writes about what she learns everyday from her interactions with her younger, ‘annoying’ brother. Her book, How To Deal With and Care For Your Annoying Little Brother, hit Amazon shelves in November of 2016 and has since become an Amazon Best Seller.
Eleven year old Greta, wrote an article for The Huffington Post about the importance of the Women’s Strike, which took place on March 8, 2017. Sports, entertainment and everything else in the world would not be the same if women did not exist, Greta explains in the article entitled, Why The Women’s Strike Is Important, By An 11-year-old. Her article went viral and was shared throughout all social media platforms.
These girls are great young role models for other children and are making sure that their voices are being heard.
