Surayyah “RayRay” Fofana is a 16 year old high student, activist, dancer and writer with a full head of phenomenally curly hair. RayRay Paints a Self-Portrait is her first ever children’s book. It’s based on her own experience as well experiences of families and children with varied racial, ethnic and/or religious backgrounds. Surayyah is interested in raising awareness around all things tied to race, culture and diversity and creating a better, more inclusive world. She hopes this book can give readers an honest, warm and welcoming idea of a diverse home, much like the one she has has grown up in.
