The young immigrants in The Good Braider were honored as part of the spring ENTERTEENMENT celebration at the Prudential Center in Boston. Jessica of the Young Broadcasters of America interviewed me about writing the novel in an event recorded and and produced by Lauren of YBA. Enterteement is a youth empowerment organization and online and print magazine. Amanda Mills Wills, CEO, surely is empowering youth with the featured speakers at the event, 16-year old Rachel D’Ambrosio who told her personal experience with melanoma and presented with the Melanoma Foundation and 19-year old Ava Anderson who presented about her own cosmetics company, Ava Anderson Non-Toxic. 17-year old Viola of my book was in wonderful company with these strong young women.
