Hi guys, thank you for visiting my website. My name is Makaylah Safiya Williams and this is my first book, which is based on a true story. I am 9 years old at the time of writing this message.
I bravely travelled to The Gambia despite having fears about lions roaming the streets. When I arrived, I discovered that television did not tell the full story about Africa; there were no lions to be found only beautiful people from the African Diaspora with amazing stories to tell.
Parents agree this is a great bedtime companion for children aged 8+. Educators can use the quiz page at the back of the book as well as the poetry challenge for classroom learning activities.
'My First Trip to The Gambia' is a great way to teach children more about the continent of Africa and develop their confidence, self-esteem and sense of adventure.
My Dad is an amazing man, he works with young people and he is an author or 5 books.
Please click below to learn about my Dads' latest book, From Boyhood to Manhood (it is a course about Manhood too). My Dad says that young boys need to learn about manhood. He is always talking about gangs, youth violence, domestic violence and how young boys are not being taught about manhood, so young boys lose their way and end up in all sorts of issues.
