GIRLS WRITE NOW HONOREE MAJA KRISTIN
Philanthropist, Entrepreneur & Author
There is always possibility, mystery, and hope in young women. Finding voice to that, especially with the written word, can be really, really hard. Girls Write Now supports, nourishes, and provides a bridge to telling the stories we so desperately need to hear. —Maja Kristin
The inspiring new memoir, Instructions Not Included, by entrepreneur and philanthropist Maja Kristin is an enthralling narrative woven with threads of passion, adversity, and the relentless pursuit of truth. It offers a glimpse into a world where boundaries are shattered, and where the allure of sex, drugs, and the sting of betrayal collide. From uncovering family secrets to finding her own way in the world, Kristin shares her experiences growing up with great vulnerability and honesty, and explores her mother’s life via intimate diary entries. Maja’s story is a beacon of hope, an inherent reminder that when women support and uplift one another, incredible things are bound to happen.
*Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Girls Write Now, an award-winning national organization that mentors the next generation of young women writers and gender-expansive youth.
