This podcast features Lower School Learning Specialist Monique Duncan who has been at Trinity since 2017. Monique is dedicated to influencing youth positively through education and advocacy. She writes and illustrates multicultural children's stories that inspire, amuse, and foster a love of reading, while reflecting images and experiences with which children of diverse cultures can identify. She aims to help cultivate their understanding of themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Monique is passionate about representation in children’s literature and wants Black children to feel affirmed when reading her stories. Her most recent book is When Mama Braids My Hair, which describes a young girl's experience of having her hair braided and the bond it creates with her mother. In 2019, When Mama Braids My Hair was nominated for an Ezra Jack Keats Award. It was also selected for the Cooperative Children’s Book Center Choices 2019 best-of-the-year list, and it was featured on the PBS series, Let's Learn
