About the Author:

Octavia Yearwood is an author, artist educator, mentor; and much more to many around her. As a young girl Yearwood started out writing poetry, though after being pre-published at 16, went into performance arts. Yearwood has returned to her literary roots with her debut book, boldly titled, “How The Hell Did You DO That?!”. Yearwood is a former foster child, born and raised New Yorker, who learned to navigate through the “rights” and “wrongs” and how overcome adversity on the fly. Her debut book is for youth and adults that are still trying to navigate through adversity. She spends a lot of her time advocating for youth and organizing artistic collaborations and she’s been doing internationally for the last 15 years. She had done “her work” in Nepal, India, and all around the U.S.
