By writing a children’s book, I hope to dispel the negative myths surrounding sharks early. I also hope to motivate young children to develop a familiarity with sharks and inspire them to become future advocates for the protection of our ocean! One long year ago, I wrote the initial manuscript for A Familiar Fin. After rounds and rounds of editing and revising, a fellow classmate of my high school, Dhruv Singh, drew beautiful illustrations to bring this book to life. Each book bought supports Sharks4Kids, an important organization encouraging awareness and action for young children.
