Takiyah L. Prowell: Showing The World The Power Of Reading
Takiyah is a joyful and talented 9-year-old who enjoys reading. She has received various awards and recognition at school for her reading skills.
On August 17, 2020, Takiyah decided to display her love of reading by publishing her first children's book, Re-Re The Reader. Re-Re The Reader details the story of a young girl who gains superpowers through reading. This title became a bestseller in several categories which helped Takiyah add "Bestselling Author" to her young resume. She was later named as a finalist in the Author category for St. Louis Magazine’s 2021 A-List Awards.
Takiyah strives to promote literacy among her peers and is partnering with Reading Superheroes STL. She has donated over 200 books in order to build children’s libraries at home. She has also donated books to schools in West Tennessee, several communities nationwide and in Cameroon. In July 2021, Takiyah received a community award by The Mission Attempt STL for her philanthropic efforts.
Takiyah is a member of Young Biz Kidz, an organization based in St. Louis, MO that promotes entrepreneurship and financial literacy for children. She also works as an assistant for her brother’s business, JZ’s Sweets. Takiyah loves to sing and dreams to become a nurse, veterinarian, and ballerina. She hopes that other kids will grow to love reading through Re-Re The Reader.
