Christal Cherry loves to write stories and help ideas come to life. This book was inspired by the real-life Mac, a spectacular and creative kid (who is slightly different too!)
When Christal isn’t working as a nonprofit consultant, she is hanging out with her favorite person in the world: her son, Mac, whom she adopted at six weeks old. They live with their Yorkie Poo named Charlie in the Peach State of Georgia.
Christal Cherry is different in all kinds of ways. She microwaves ice cream and puts sugar on her grits! She does things her own way and wants kids to have the courage to do things their own way too. Those unique things helped her receive The Wonderful Woman of WOC Award in 2021, by the Women of Color, in Fundraising in Philanthropy.
Cherry has a BA from Hofstra University and an MA from Hampton University. She is on the board of the Villages of Carver YMCA, a member of the African American Development Officers Network, and founder of Fabulous Female Fundraisers, a network of professional nonprofit female fundraisers.
