by Gee NY

Normani Hamilton, a 10-year-old girl from Niagara Falls, has become a published author with her book “My Beautiful Hair.”

This talented young girl, who enjoys gymnastics, dancing, singing, acting, and journaling, wrote the book to inspire children to embrace their uniqueness and natural hair.

Normani’s book carries an empowering message, encouraging children with natural hair to see the beauty in their own uniqueness. She hopes to instil self-confidence and self-acceptance in young readers, helping them recognize their beauty and value.

According to a report published by CBC, it took Normani one year to complete the book, and she collaborated with her mother, who is also the illustrator. The book is aimed at inspiring young girls to embrace their natural beauty without feeling the need to conform to societal standards.

Normani’s mother, Rodale Dwyer, revealed that Normani had been curious about her hair since a very young age, asking questions about why her hair was different and why it didn’t conform to certain beauty ideals.

“So … I went to my mom and I told her I wanted to write a book because I really wanted to inspire girls that they’re beautiful … their hair is beautiful, and I just want to inspire them,” she recalls.

The book’s publication has garnered positive feedback and has been used in schools and communities as part of Black History Month activities. Normani’s school, Father Hennepin Catholic Elementary School, has celebrated her achievement and plans to feature her book during Book Buddy Day.

Normani’s impact as a young author is a source of pride and inspiration, and she is already working on her second book, titled “My Beautiful Skin,” scheduled for publication later in 2023.

Normani’s story serves as a testament to the power of self-expression and the importance of fostering self-confidence and self-acceptance in young children.
