The 2021 series is authored by program participants of the Latin American Youth Center in Washington, DC, representing eight countries around the world.

In Joy-Grace and the Dress Dilemma, authors Joy and Tseganesh wanted to write a book about the challenges--and the beauty!--of having a multicultural identity. Joy-Grace is a fashionista, and this week is her school's culture day. She wants to bring in a garment to reflect her background, but there's only one problem: her family is from Nigeria, Jamaica, AND Ethiopia! Will Joy-Grace be able to find the perfect dress to celebrate all of who she is in time for culture day?

About the Authors: Tseganesh Chala is a senior at Theodore Roosevelt High School. She is Ethiopian and moved to the United States when she was 16. Joy Ugwu is 19 years old and studying at Carnegie Mellon University. She was born in Jamaica to Igbo immigrants from Niger
