About the Author
Tina has enjoyed working with children for over twenty years in many capacities. As a teenager, she volunteered for several arts organizations and was a key player in the Queensboro Public Library Children's Literacy Program. While pursuing her degree in Psychology at Hunter College, she served as a mentor for inner city youth in the New York City Public School System in Harlem. A prolific artist and writer, she has won several awards for her work in the arts. She firmly believes that no child should be denied access to art, music, or any other creative outlet and that they deserve to share their talent with their parents, teachers, and peers.
