Chantel is the author of book “Imani’s Diary” a coming of age fictional novel depicting the lives of teenagers set in the 90’s. Inspiration for Imani’s Diary came from Chantel’s passion to support young females. Many of the scenarios and circumstances within the book such as relationships, dysfunctional families, lone families, and abandonment are derived from the challenges that Chantel observes through her own work as a Teen Mentor for young women. The book is great for parents, those working in education and the community, to get an insight into the challenges that teenagers may be facing.
