MEET THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BOX
Mother. Educator. Author.
Porsha found a passion in paying it forward back in college through tutoring and mentoring. Being a former early-elementary educator for 8 years and recognizing the gaps within children's books when it came to representation, she decided to fill the gap. Creating L.I.T. Kids was a way to give kids the opportunity for connection through representation by learning and being inspired through the many books and characters they would meet. Not remembering many books of color being accessible to her during adolescence, she did not want her son to experience the same. She then began her journey with researching and reading children's books highlighting black and brown characters. A native of Austin, TX and a proud HBCU graduate, she is striving to be a trailblazer in youth work through education, reading literacy development, and much more.
