Passionate educator and self-published book author Shariece Williams is making a powerful impact on the lives of numerous children at a time in history when people of color are openly pursuing some of the most phenomenal achievements in the world. Through her Princess Heart and Penny D book series, the author wishes to empower children to start believing in the power of their dreams and the value of working hard.
“I have always had the vision to motivate people and encourage children to understand that they can do anything they put their minds into and should never give up. Children should always be encouraged to work hard,” Shariece Williams explains. “Even if one child crosses my path, I want them to always walk away with a life-learning experience and, that is, no matter who doesn’t believe in them, I will always believe in them and want them to be beyond great in any and everything they do,” she adds.
The author was born in Vallejo, California, and currently lives with her husband Pendarvis and their two beautiful children. She finished her MA in Education from Norfolk State University in Virginia. As an educator, she has worked closely with young people from different countries, including Italy, China, Germany, and France. Her experiences opened her eyes to the many challenges that young people today have to contend with on a daily basis, and being able to filter what adults tell them is highly important.
Shariece Williams has published a total of four books so far. They highlight skills that readers can achieve through self-teaching while at home. The motivational content is designed to be relatable and enjoyable so that the materials can be passed on from one generation to another. At present, she is coaching several inspirational writers who also intend to self-publish their children’s stories.
Shariece Williams’ motivation to develop the Princess Heart and Penny D series into a powerful and influential literary brand comes from a personal experience deeply rooted in her life. In middle school, she was told that she would never accomplish much at a young age. Instead of letting all the negativity dampen her dreams of becoming somebody great one day, she used it to propel herself into greatness. She made a commitment that she would always encourage every child she encounters in life, knowing fully well how words can shape the direction of their future.
Completing her Princess Heart and Penny D series is something that Shariece Williams wants to accomplish in the next five years, and along with it, she also wants to achieve all the other goals tied to finishing her book series. These exciting possibilities are the very reasons that motivate the writer to get out of bed each day and work tirelessly.
At this point in her career, the passionate educator and writer is all about making a lasting impact on the lives of children, and by reading her books, they can make a priceless realization about their future. Determined to make a difference among children where it matters most, Shariece Williams is an unstoppable force that will help shape the drive and mindset of the next generation.
