Jenny Delacruz



Jenny Delacruz is a Haitian-American new writer who has always loved reading growing up. Born and raised in New York, she was aware of the importance of diversity and how each person has a story that weaves back to generations. She personally appreciates the four elements of hip hop, learning languages, and is a certified yoga instructor.

Jenny fell in love with history at Buffalo State College, where she graduated with a B.A in Psychology and minored in African & African-American History. After graduating with a Masters in Counseling from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University), Jenny became more aware of how the books children read help them make meaning about themselves.
