by Mirror Me Write in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

Hello and welcome to my crowdfunder for Mirror Me Write. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Ayesha, a mother of two, full time teaching assistant and overall I’d like to say a decent human.

I have been in education for most of my life, initially starting as a community artist and arts educator.

I have always been passionate about literacy and reading and have found comfort, knowledge and escapism in Books. I am passionate about how reading, raises literacy and attainment levels but more than anything I just want children and young adults to love books, like I do and be inspired by what they read.  

I felt compelled to start Mirror Me Write in October 2019 as I have over the years seen the lack of representation in books. I truly believe that books on the market should be representative of all communities, genders, special educational needs and I believe that children and young adults need to see themselves in stories. I also believe that it is important to have authentic voices, where the author is rooted in their experience.

With your help and support I would like to raise money to be able to expand Mirror Me Writes presence in the North, North-West, build up our stock of books, create partnerships with schools and, develop our website and purchase a small van to create our diversity mobile. 

At Mirror Me Write we believe in promoting social change, we would like to build networks with community groups in areas around us with high levels of poverty and  where children may not have access to books.

Pls help us make the difference, pls help us make change. Be the change you want to see in the world.
