I’m Shai Lynne Johnson and I’m the youngest of three. I have two older sisters. The oldest is Sharon and the middle child is Shawna Johnson. My dad was retired from the U.S. Air Force, whom we lost in 2018 and my mother is working with her siblings in their family business T&E Innovations and Designs.
I wrote a fairy tale story and won 1st place in the Young Author’s competition. The name of my story was the Magical Butterfly. I choose a butterfly because I did a research on them and they start as a caterpillar then wraps itself up in a cocoon and then hatches out as a butterfly. I thought about how I am, which is, shy until I get to know you. Moving to Indiana was hard for me at first so I just turned some of my life into a fairy tale. My mom would say when I have no one to play with, I could entertain myself. After several people read my story, I was encouraged to put it into a book.
Whatever God has planned for me, I am ready to take it on!
