Nine-year-old award winning author and poet, Anaya Lee Willabus, is launching her second book, ‘A Bully’s Disguise.’ A trip to Guyana two years ago inspired Anaya to write her first book, “The Day Mohan Found His Confidence.” The book which was published earlier this year, earned her five awards, as well as local and international recognition for her outstanding literary contribution.
Today, Anaya maintains her outstanding academic standing at school while tutoring first graders, writes for ‘Forum Kids Magazine,’ plays soccer and holds a brown belt in Shotokan karate. Anaya was born in Brooklyn, New York to Guyanese parents, Dimple and Winston Willabus of Georgetown, Guyana.
We are so proud and inspired!! Best news we’ve heard all day.
