Jodi-Tatiana Charles, MBA’09

Jodi-Tatiana Charles wrote her first children’s book, It’s Just a Rug. The picture book tells the story of three friends from different backgrounds who learn what makes each of them unique and who come to understand one another’s values and traditions. Jodi-Tatiana emails, “I grew up with close friends of different nationalities and ancestries, and at an early age I learned the importance of embracing others’ unique stories. I wrote the book to help spark curiosity and discussion about appreciating different cultures and celebrating one’s heritage.”
