Giselle Laurent

Fueling the gift of literacy

“I have had a passion for books from an early age—everything from children’s fiction to Agatha Christie, National GeographicReader’s Digest, and encyclopedias,” says Giselle Laurent, a Dominican known for her passion for child literacy and, as creator and editor of Domnitjen Magazine, her writing and graphic design skills. “Reading is a skill which goes hand in hand with writing and leads to the independence that literacy brings. Reading—both fiction and non-fiction—fuels imagination and creativity and aids with problem-solving and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking which propels innovation and development. I feel that reading from a young age and having access to a wide variety of books is the best gift to give a child—the gift of literacy will never expire and can only improve with age.”
