Hiya, hiya! My name is AJay and I created "The Bookshelf," a FREE online resource featuring books and stories created by marginalized and underrepresented authors. From elementary school throughout my college years, I struggled to find stories with characters who shared the same marginalizations as me. I created this page so that others would not have that same experience! #RepresentationMatters #FeelSeen #OwnVoices Producing and maintaining this page involves coding and continuous upkeep, and in the future I hope to expand *The Bookshelf*, create new sites, and add other cool and fun ways to search and discover these awesome stories. I'd love your support! Big, small, something in between--it all matters and it all helps cover the cost of maintaining this resource. Thank you so much!
