Bright future ahead – Inglewood student publishes book, donates proceeds to underprivileged children

    A Journey of a Thousand Z's by Affan Sheikh

    Affan Sheikh, rising seventh grader at Inglewood Middle School (IMS), has done more than most adults at the age of 11. Affan recently published his first eBook that is now available on Amazon. “A Journey of a Thousand Z's” is a short fiction story that follows the writer’s future self as he creates the world's first time machine and how he chooses to use it. On his journey, he witnesses key events in history and even comes across other intelligent life where he least expects. All illustrations in the eBook are hand drawn by Affan.

    Affan is directing all proceeds generated from his book towards supporting education for underprivileged children across the globe through his family's non-profit initiative, The Literacy Crusade. The initiative is a 2016 President Obama’s National Service Gold Award recipient. Affan is the youngest ambassador of The Literacy Crusade since he began at the age of five. 

    The eBook is available on Amazon and can be viewed using a Kindle.
