Children’s diversity author and storyteller, Marsha Campbell was born in Mandeville, Jamaica, and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. While her background is in Insurance Technology, she has always had a love for storytelling through books, poems, and photography. Throughout her life, Marsha kept a notepad filled with creative writing centered around characters of color.
In 2019, she gave birth to her first child, a beautiful daughter named Aria. Becoming a mother enflamed her passion for writing, but also manifested a new calling---education. Now, utilizing her gift of storytelling along with her calling for diversity education, Marsha is committed to crafting beautiful stories centered on self-affirmation and purpose.
You're Here for a Purpose: Positive Self-Talk for Black Children is Marsha’s first picture book, which she is self-publishing. Her goal with this book is to provide a language to black children to increase self-esteem, self-worth, and self-image; all of which lead to self-love. She believes children who master positive self-talk are more healthy, confident, motivated, and productive.
In addition to working on several new picture books. Marsha has also created diversity affirming clothing and merchandise. Marsha enjoys volunteering in the community with her beloved sorority sisters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. She lives in New York with her hubby and daughter.
A little girl born in paradise had big dreams of exploring the world. Dreams of visiting foreign lands to learn about her ancestors, explore new cultures, and learn new languages. Dreams of being transported to new realms, embarking on new adventures, and immersing in the unknown. Dreams of finding answers to both simple and complex questions. Dreams of challenging her understanding of humanity.
Dreams of understanding basic human emotions. Dreams of connecting with nature and exploring the divinity within. Dreams of evolving into an independent and cultured woman. All of these dreams against a backdrop of ancient castles, beautiful beaches, magical artwork, and nature at its finest.
