Biography

Nelly Sarpong

Nelly Sarpong was born in Germany but grew up in Ghana. During her formative years in Germany, she rarely saw any books with a black protagonist, talk less of a book with black children on the cover pages. With everything happening in the world, it is imperative that all children of every race feel represented in literature; to know they are seen, heard and that they can also be heroes of their own stories. Nelly is currently resident in Berlin, Germany.
