Danielle & Nadirah = Mighty Buds


Danielle Burrows and Nadirah Nichols began their mentorship in fall 2011 when Nadirah was an eleven-year old sixth grader. Today, Nadirah’s 14 and finishing eighth grade at the Truebright Science Academy Charter School. We caught up with Danielle recently to find out how it’s going and how she likes being a mentor.

What kind of kid is Nadirah? What kinds of things does she like?
I wasn’t surprised to discover that Nadirah’s the youngest in her family because you sense right away that she’s spent a lot of time absorbing adult banter. She’s quick-witted and precocious, but not in a way that robs her of her youthfulness. I’m blown away by her ability to churn out writing that is paced and executed in a style not far removed from young adult literature. She was one of the first kids through the door at Mighty Writers. She is an avid reader and especially loves young adult author Sharon Draper.
