Storefront alumnus Kai Nedd ('12) recently had her first book, Graciously Flawed, published by Boss Chic Empire Publications. The urban fiction book has garnered great response and has been listed as one of Amazon's best sellers!
"I was inspired to write this book because I realized how much the literary world lacked on the subject of full-figured women," Kai said. "Like the character in my book, I am full-figured and proud, not sad or unaware of my beauty."
Graciously Flawed is a love story about two intelligent teens, rubenesque Kelsey Washington and athlete Calvin Powers. "I wanted to convey the message that opposite attract, and can make a beautiful life for themselves."
Kai is a student at Life Sciences Secondary School. "It's the best kept secret on the East side because of how small it is compared to other high schools, and the activities that take place there."
Kai credits her time at Storefront Academy for a lot of her success. "Storefront was honestly one of the best experiences a child could have," Kai said. "Every teacher dealt with each of the students with care, almost like we were their very own." She also says that because of Storefront Academy, she's more flexible and able to adapt to any setting.
