A model, fashion designer and entrepreneur Tania Omotayo has said she wrote a book titled ‘Sarai’s Culture Day’ to encourage the next generation to embrace their culture and heritage.
Statement sent to Saturday Beats, described the book as “warm and uplifting, the perfect starting point for teaching children the importance of embracing their culture and heritage.” It encourages schools across Europe and Africa to have their own ‘culture day’ to learn and showcase their culture and heritage.
Omotayo also encouraged the youth to know that their originality is their superpower. She added that she was inspired by her three-year-old daughter Sarai.
He said: “Let young people understand that they are pretty much perfect just the way they are, regardless of race, religion and culture. Always be proud of where you come from. You can only be yourself.”
Published by Kunda Kids, a children’s publishing, educational technology and media company, the book will be officially launched in London, UK and Lagos, Nigeria. It was portrayed by Chike Obasi.
For her part, Louisa Olafuyi, founder of Kunda Kids, said: “Children should be encouraged to embrace their cultures, which positively affects how they see themselves and embrace others.”
