At what moment did you realize you held a gift for writing?
I realized I had a gift for writing at a young age in elementary school around the age of ten I started writing poetry.
Can you recall the first book you encountered and how did it affect you?
The complete collection of Maya Angelou poems was some of the first set of poems I ever read in middle school it made me feel included she sounded like a grandmother and she looked like me (color-wise) it made me feel like I could be and do anything.
What is your creative process like?
My creative process is a time of solace and being alone just me a pen my notebook and a computer. Listening to a peaceful sound I may walk outside looking at creation it sparks my imagination.
What do you hope others take away from your work?
I hope others see that everyone is unique and different and no matter how you enter into this world you can achieve great things through love and faith in The Most High also that dreams are meant to come true.
What is next for Amina?
Next for Amina is turning my children’s book into a cartoon and getting it on television for children of all ages to see and enjoy!
If you could encourage a room full of young writers, what would you say?
I would tell young writers to stay in touch with their imagination! Nothing is impossible, write down your ideas don’t procrastinate never listen to naysayers. I would also tell them just because one has eyes does not mean they were meant to see your vision!
