Wesley Sanders

I am a passionate writer and a voracious reader. I earned my associate degree in literature and creative writing from Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC). I am currently working towards my bachelor’s degree at New York University (NYU) where I am studying African American representation through storytelling as part of the Gallatin Guide program.

I am fascinated by how people of color are represented in all mediums and how that affects their identity. I plan on becoming a public school teacher and a young adult (YA) author. I am working on my first novel about a black superhero growing up in a city where even though he has superpowers, he has to overcome racism.
