Hampton, VA – Author, entrepreneur and motivator Sadequa Johnson will join Hampton students April 20 in the Scripps Studio at 1p.m.
Johnson started as a public relations manager promoting well-known authors such as JK Rowling, Bebe Moore Campbell, Amy Tan and Bishop TD Jakes. She soon realized her own gifts and talents as a writer and blazed her own trail.
After being rejected by a handful of publishing houses, Johnson created the 12th Street Press, a boutique publishing company that specialized in giving a voice to unique talent.
She later landed a publishing deal with Thomas Dunne Books / St. Martin’s Press. She is now on tour with her third novel, And then there was me. Johnson is currently working on her fourth novel.
From passion to Publishing to Self Discovery, Johnson inspires students across the country to go after their own dreams.
“No matter how many "no's" you get, there will always be a "yes,”” said Johnson.
