Our Founder


Nahjee Grant is an educator, author, entrepreneur, and nonprofit leader. Growing up in a school district without many books with characters of color, Nahjee began writing and publishing his own stories after graduating high school. After years of writing a series of books and sharing his motivational stories with thousands of students, he recognized the need to nurture children's creative sides and began mentoring youth in his community. With the lack of high-quality mentoring and enrichment based programs for youth within schools across the country, Nahjee decided to connect his love and passion for educating youth and started The Cool Smart Kid Learning Center as a program for his nonprofit, The World Was Made For You.
