This is the beginning of a book I am planning to write, based on a true story of my realizing that I liked a girl for the first time.
Isioma Okoh is a first-generation American from a Nigerian father and Trinidadian mother. She loves expressing herself by putting pen, pencil or paint brush to paper! She is most proud of performing a winning speech she wrote about LGBTQIA+ rights at the New York Historical Society, starting a new art club at her school and cutting her hair short when it took four years to grow out. She is excited to be in Girls Write Now because it will give her a chance to embrace her passion for writing and get feedback from someone who understands how special this art form is, too!
