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 third culture kid, I was raised with influences from Nigerian, Ghanaian, Filipino, and Canadian cultures. These memories combined with my experiences led me to begin writing the stories and creating the representation that I never had growing up. 

The Book That Started it All

“Amina’s Afro” is a fun story that teaches young readers about inclusivity, confidence, and diversity. Amina and her friends embark on a fun journey of expression and individuality as Amina tries new hairstyles and her friends try to do the same. The book is quickly finding its way into homes and schools across the globe, enchanting young minds and igniting a passion for reading.

Future Horizons

Fueled by the success of “Amina’s Afro,” I intend to continue to captivate readers with more exciting tales in the future. My second book “Jamilah’s Family” has been published and is available for purchase as well! My unique combination of personal experiences and imagination ensures that there are still many stories to come!
