Akira Bennett is a self-published author and spoken word artist from New York, where she began her life-long writing journey. Writing since childhood and professionally active in publishing and writing for over a decade, Akira is the author of two published inspirational books: a poetic collection and a book for children. With new literary works to be released in the new season, some of her other works include numerous plays and magazine articles. Akira believes that the usage of words is her superpower, as words have the power to enact transformation for a better world---her work and efforts seek to utilize words for that cause. She also enjoys helping other inspirational authors who may be struggling to release their work, to find the confidence and clarity to take their projects from pending to published. Faith, family, books, and business are Akira’s life priorities, informing her work and role as a writer.
