Hello, I am Mala'ika!

I am a digital creator based in Winnipeg, MB. I have always had a knack for creativity, art, and storytelling. As a multi-generationally mixed Canadian, I grew up with influences from various cultures. These memories combined with my experiences led me to begin writing the stories and creating the representation that I never had growing up. 

Fueled by the success of my debut publication, “Amina’s Afro,” I intend to continue to inspire readers with more exciting tales in the future. My second book “Jamilah’s Family” has already begun to captivate readers! My unique combination of personal experiences and imagination ensures that there are still many stories to come!

Children's Books

As a writer and artist, I aim to create stories of family, friendship, and adventure featuring diverse characters to provide positive representation for Black and brown children that break the conventional storylines and harmful tropes we are used to. Every stroke of my digital pen is a commitment to creating fun and inspiring stories for children of all backgrounds!

Afro Girlie Notebooks

The Afro Girlie Notebooks, Planners, and Journals are a testament of the diversity and representation that I strive to create! Featuring diverse representations of black women, these hand drawn soft cover notebooks are perfect for a variety of uses

Prank Notebooks

These are a collection of journals with funny and thought-provoking titles! Aside from providing a perfectly portable 200 page lined journal, these notebooks also make great coffee table and decor books to serve as a conversation starter for various topics. 


In addition to notebooks, many of my creations are available as stickers, magnets, pins, hoodies, tote bags, and other merch through my RedBubble shop. You can also support my creator journey through Ko-Fi, a virtual tip jar featuring exclusive content, digital downloads, and other exclusive updates!
