Felicia is a best-selling author and an active advocate for journaling. She encourages aspiring writers to journal at least once a day.
“Journaling helps keep your thoughts and ideas flowing. Writing brings out many relatable emotions and thoughts to share with others. I don’t only write for myself, but I write for others. I try to always write with a purpose.”
It is as Maya Angelou said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will not forget how you made them feel.”
Felicia says “I write, speak and advocate to make the audience feel something enough to move them to talk about the issues that effect our lives.”
It all began when Felicia was was six years old. Her first grade teacher, Mrs. Bonita Medley, had given her second grade class their very first writing assignment. The class was instructed to write one paragraph about something that they wanted. It was weekend homework. Therefore, Felicia knew that she would have time to think of something a write an interesting paragraph about it. One paragraph about a simple thing that she wanted turned into 100 pages. Felicia filled up an entire notebook, creating her first novel entitled I Want A Dog. To Felicia’s surprise, her mother, nor Mrs. Medley were upset nor surprised. Mrs. Medley encouraged Felicia to continue writing so that one day she may become an author.
