Author Shani Godwin was seven when she wrote her first essay, a composition about Harriet Tubman. She was in Ms. Vandenburgh's 2nd grade class. "We had to dress up and read our essays in front of the entire school. So there I stood skinny and plain, wearing my mom's denim skirt, which hung to my ankles, a white shirt and a red scarf tied tightly around my stubby plaits. I, the lone Harriet Tubman amidst a class full of Betsy Rosses. My life has never made sense that way, I've always been set apart," she recalls.
As an entrepreneur by day and a writer by night, today Shani leads a successful marketing firm, Communiqué USA, where she helps clients communciate more effectively with their customers. Additionally, she also manages a successful blog and publishing company, Audible Voices, where she inspires others to find their voice and speak their truth.
When she's not writing, the Atlanta native enjoys reading, traveling internationally, running and spending time with her family and friends.
