Alexis Wyatt is an educator, tutor, and mentor. She holds a B.S. in Public Administration from Oakland University, along with a Master of Arts in Teaching from Lee University. In her final days at Oakland University, she realigned her career pathway. Always having a passion for helping others, she realized her true dream was to focus on the youth. She has invested years working with the youth in after-school programs, youth organizations, and non-profits, including Reach One Teach One.

She did not realize the importance of self-love and self-worth until her adulthood. The more children who crossed her path, the more she identified the need for her book, 31 Affirmations to a Brown Child. She wants children of color to understand their beauty and limitless potential. She wants to alter the false narrative surrounding their culture.

We had the privilege of listening to Alexis speak to the kids of ROTO (Reach One Teach One) this week. Alexis spoke confidently as she read these powerful affirmations to the kids. Some of these affirmations include, “Your mind is a garden”, and, “Your locs represent Mother Nature’s hills and rivers”.

31 Affirmations to a Brown Child is not a book that WSP has published, as we just met Alexis Wyatt, but we believe it is important enough to share with our audience. You can find this book and more information about The Affirmation Mommy, Alexis Wyatt, by following the links below.
