It is our hopes that each resource provided will serve to build confidence, enhance self esteem, develop leadership skills, empower, uplift and educate our African American girls. We are not recommending these programs, but offering a starting point for you to conduct your own evaluation and research about whether a program is right for your child.

    My name is K.P. Smith. I am the author of Growing Pains; Kendra’s Diaries. It is the first book in the Growing Pains series. Please take some time and review my website it would give you more information about myself, my book and my mission. You can also read my first chapter.

    However, I can tell you my mission is similar to yours. Through the life and experiences of the main character, Kendra Foster, I aspire to encourage, uplift and inspire adolescents through the journey of growing up.

    I would like to send you promotional materials and/or a complimentary copy of my book for your review. Yes I am bias but it is the truth; I believe Growing Pains; Kendra’s Diaries is a must read for young adults.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
