Teen author Maryam Muhammad says everyone must live their truth

Which new authors have piqued your interest? 

Some new authors that have piqued my interest are Emma Dabiri, Mikki Kendall, Tomi Adeyemi, and Nayyirah Waheed – huge emphasis on Nayyirah Waheed. I will always champion and support Black women who write.


What advice can you offer women who aspire to become authors? 

Some advice that I can offer is to never let anyone tell you what your story is or who you are. Don’t let anyone tell you what to write about or what you’re allowed to say. If you’re going to make a statement, make sure you can stand by it.
