About the Author
As a consequence of experiencing life changing gender discrimination at the very beginning of my life, I understand the importance of working towards the goal of a world that embraces all people regardless of race, religion, sex, or sexual preference. It's the reason why I wrote this book. I was lucky. I was adopted into a loving home. Tens of thousands of abandoned children are never adopted. That is why it is so important to help other at-risk children who share my story. It is also the reason why 100% of the proceeds from this book are donated to the OneSky charity whose mission is to help abandoned and other marginalized children throughout Asia receive much needed medical care, education and most of all loving caregivers.

If you do not wish to purchase a book but would like to make a tax deductible donation to OneSky, please donate through my OneSky Crowdrise campaign by clicking on the donate button at the top of the page. All donations go directly to OneSky.org. They are never sent to me. OneSky will acknowledge your contribution and email you a receipt.
To reach the largest reader audience, I have translated the book in Spanish and I am in the process of translating the book into Arabic, Mandarin, and Hindi with the help of other students. The book is also available as a free download on my Shop page. I also have plans to write another children's book that teaches children economic principles.
A little more about me. I live in southern California with my parents and attend Stanford Online High School. In addition to creative writing, I love Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, learning and thinking about economics, and tutoring kids in math.
