Hey, I'm Lalaa!

I'm so glad you stopped by to my piece of the internet. I've always loved reading the stories of people who look like me. No matter the situation there’s a book I can point to and a story I can lean on. These stories are not mine but they are all a part of me. I've learned that our stories and voices are important and my goal is to continue reading them and sharing them. To discover, discuss and celebrate these stories but most importantly introduce other Black Girls to them too, so they may discover their own story within.
