The Author


Damyionne grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a little girl, she wore afro puffs similar to Aida’s and dreamed of being a teacher and an author. Even when her childhood changed dramatically after her family was displaced by Hurricane Katrina, Damyionne never lost sight of her dreams. Today, she teaches first grade in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Aida Brown Finds Her Crown is her first children’s book.
