Veronica Chapman said she first became aware of the low self-esteem young girls experience when she started a workshop that worked with teen black girls.  Since then she has been on a mission to help young girls see themselves in a different light.  Modeled after the classic book “I Think I Can,” Veronica says it’s time black girls stopped thinking they can accomplish thing and actually do it.  Her book “I Know I Can” follows the life of a young girl named Faith who knows she can do anything she puts her mind to.

Veronica is facing  just one barrier.  She lacks the funding necessary to publish her books.  “I Know I Can” has the potential to be revolutionary for little Black girls, but Veronica needs the help of brown mamas like us to make sure that every little Black girl has access to information that uplifts and affirms her goals.  Veronica started a campaign on Kickstarter (click here to view it) to meet her goal of raising $8500 to bring “I Know I Can” to fruition and she only has two weeks to get there.  Check her and Faith out!

 

Here’s what Veronica hopes to accomplish with her campaign.
