Jake was just 6 years old when he started writing stories with accompanying illustrations – all from his imagination and without any help or guidance.
With all the chatter regarding the pandemic, schools closing, and people having to stay indoors, Jake became curious about the virus and started asking questions. Within a few days, he had produced his first illustrated book, Corona Travel.
After his family and friends got their hands on Jake’s book, they encouraged him to publish it (along with support from his teacher at St Joseph’s Middle School, Mrs Serena Lopez, who told him that one day he’ll be a famous author!).
Jake kindly wanted to help others in need with his book, choosing to raise funds for Action4schools, Rifcom and Help Me Learn Africa. He has now sold a whopping 1,000 copies of his book.
So, what’s next for Jake? Another book, of course – and it’s already out! Along with 3 other children across the globe, Jake helped to produce I Am Finally Free, a story to encourage us all to make informed choices for a sustainable and happy future.
