Ahsa's Good Deed

"And deeds, no matter how small, have the power to live forever." 

Book One: Ahsa's Good Deed 

"There once was a girl named Ahsa. She belonged to a family of three. One day on the way to school, she stopped and did a good deed.


Today was a very special day. This, everyone knew. It came but once a year, the most important day in school.


The village where Ahsa lived, it was very small. It was nestled in the great forest, where the trees grew strong and tall.


Beside the mighty river, under the old tree, Ahsa would recite her lessons. She did this faithfully.


With hair growing toward the sun and skin as dark as night, Ahsa practiced and practiced. She wanted to get this right."

The Story of Ahsa: Prologue 

"In another time and place lived a people called the Sai. Their village was a paradise, and they respected the world outside. 


The Sai lived in a wonderful village. Of it, the people were very proud. They lived much of their lives in the open air, under the sun, sky, and clouds. 


The Sai lived by simple principles, yet they were very disciplined. They were taught from a young age to work hard, respect the earth, and listen. 


The Sai were a beautiful people. Everything about them reflected the earth. For it was within it they found great worth. 


This is the story of a girl named Ahsa, a child of the Sai village. I hope in her story you find small truths, inspiration, and are encouraged."

A Note on Representation 

As a media and communications professional, I know that representation matters. Our identity is formed by what we communicate to others and what they communicate back to us. That's why I created The Story of Ahsa project dedicated to uplifting black girls around the world.
