Fab Friday Spotlight: Anaya Lee Willabus

Ashley Jefferson

What do you want to be when you grow up? That's a question children hear countless times. Some kids say they want to be a teacher, or a firefighter or maybe even a doctor. 

The thing is, most kids only dream of accomplishing BIG things one day but for Anaya Lee Willabus, her dream became a reality - and she made history in the process. At just 8 years old, Anaya became the youngest author ever in the United States to publish a chapter book.

Anaya, who is now 9, says a trip to her parents' native country of Guyana in 2014 is what inspired her. Soon after returning home to Brooklyn, she began writing and taking notes of the different cultural experiences she observed during her trip. Eventually those notes were typed on the computer and as they say the rest was history.

Her book entitled The Day Mohan Found His Confidence is about the struggles that a young boy faces in his life and how he overcomes them. The book was officially published in 2015 and a whirlwind has since followed. 

Anaya has has been invited to speak all over the country and has received widespread recognition and various honors. Despite making history, it's only the beginning - Anaya is already working on her second book.

We salute Anaya for her history-making accomplishments and for doing just what she set out to do - encouraging children of all ages to "continue to dream big."

Too often trashy stories, fight videos, gossip and other not so good things flood our newsfeeds. Who needs more of that? So on Fridays we want to start spreading the positive by highlighting a fabulous female who's made quite an impact.

She could be someone from history, someone in the present, someone famous or simply an everyday girl. Either way, we want to salute these fabulous ladies for doing fabulous things and being an inspiration.

In honor of Black History Month, for our first Fab Friday Spotlight we want to highlight Rosa Parks.


She's someone just about everyone has learned about in history class as the black woman who famously refused to give up her seat to a white person on the bus - this during the trying times of segregation and racial uprising in the south. However Mrs. Parks was a Civil Rights activist long before she took that bus ride on December 1, 1955 and continued to fight for the equal rights of African-Americans long after.

One of the things Parks could most be admired for is that despite her arrest, the hate, and even the death threats she endured - she was determined to stand up for what was right and fight for freedom in the face of fear.

Parks herself said “I learned to put my trust in God and to see Him as my strength. Long ago I set my mind to be a free person and not to give in to fear. I always felt that it was my right to defend myself if I could. I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."

During the course of her life she worked for the NAACP, as an aide for Congressman John Conyers Jr., started the Rosa L. Parks Scholarship Foundation, co-founded the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development to help young people in Detroit and also authored two books. Parks died in October 2005 at the age of 92.  Yesterday, February 4th would have been her 103rd birthday.

Before she died, when asked what she wanted her legacy to be, she simply put: "I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free... so other people would be also free."

Thank you Mrs. Parks for fighting for freedom and being an inspiration to girls and young women everywhere. We salute you.
