Aisha Brown, Executive Director

My goal in life is to provide the tools to help others work toward reaching their dreams. I believe that having dreams gives us hope and purpose. 


I founded The Butterfly Literacy Group so that I can provide tools for youth to go for their dreams. The first program in our organization is Girls Empowered to Write Literature (G.E.W.L, sounds like jewel). This program will encourage better literacy skills, coping skills through journaling, and preparation for college and career readiness. 


I taught middle school for 8 years. I hold a Masters of Literacy Instruction for K-12. I also self-published 2 books: Changes: A Story of Transformation and Transformed (under the name Chrishaun Life).


My dream is to use literacy as a foundation to empower others to seek out opportunities that await them.
