Janée Hayes has written articles for various sports publications but decided to publish her first children’s book in 2020. This is book outlines the various challenges and obstacles a precocious Black girl (Jana) faces as she commences on her journey to become an athlete. Jana has no idea which sport she’ll pursue until she sets her eyes on the most amazing athlete she’s ever witnessed, a Black volleyball player. Unfortunately, Jana has no idea that becoming great isn’t an overnight process. This book was inspired by both Janée and her daughter’s experiences as they navigated the sports world.
