11-year-old author honored at Black Girls Rock awards ceremony
When Brooklyn Wright was just 7-years-old, she wrote her first book. “The Adventures of the Earth Saver Girl” was meant to inspire children her age to learn about the importance of protecting the planet.
Now, the young writer has another achievement to place under her belt. She was recently honored at the 8th annual “Black Girls Rock!” Awards.
Brooklyn is Black Girls Rock! 2013 M.A.D. (Making A Difference) Girl. She is also the recipient of the 2012 Barron Prize, a national award from Keep America Beautiful, an international award from Action for Nature and a regional award from Kohl’s Kids Who Care and Eco Superhero Award.
The Black Girls Rock! awards event celebrates exceptional “sheroes” who have made great contributions throughout their careers by being positive role models to young girls of color.
The awards is an extension of the organization, aims to inspire, mentor and empower young black women through positive portrayals of black women in entertainment and media.
Congratulations to Brooklyn and all of the other young black girls who rock!
