Siarra Turner is a fifteen-year old girl, born and raised in Georgia. She says "I first found a love for reading at age three, and it was said by my friends that I was never without a book. I just liked how I could fall into another world within the pages of the books, and as I got older, I got curious on how to do the same thing. So I tried to write stories, and they were okay, I guess, but it didn't have the same appeal as the stories I read, so I stopped briefly. As I got older though, I began to understand the value of words and the connotations they can carry. That's when I began reading black authors and found a whole new world to dive into. I found that I'm not the only black person who feels the struggles I feel, and that I'm not wrong for thinking that. Plus, I loved the way they worded phrases and described scenes so vividly, like I was right there as they were looking at it. I was fascinated by their use of words and I wanted to do the same thing, so I begin to write again."
