Mayeesa Mitchell has been a lover of the written word for as long as she can remember. She grew up reading anything she could get her hands on, including: the American Girl Series, Cam Jansen, Nancy Drew and numerous books by African-American authors. During her years as a homeschool student, Mayeesa's education was centered on literature and writing. This led her to attend High Point University where she received a B.A. in Communication with a specialization in Journalism and a B.S. in Business Administration. Following her passion of mentoring and developing college students, she is currently pursuing her M.Ed. in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education.
As a WriteAtHome alumna, Mayeesa understands the power of breaking down a writing assignment step-by-step and receiving constructive guidance from a caring coach. She hopes to empower her students to explore their imagination through the power of the written word - just as she was empowered by her coaches.
Mayeesa enjoys reading, writing, cooking, gaining new knowledge, musical theater, community service and Disney movies.
