Brianna Laren is a wife, a mom, a writer and a filmmaker. She was born in Maryland and raised in Washington D.C. She's been writing stories, poems, and plays since she was a child, but that was mostly gibberish.

Her greatest accomplishment is finding her purpose and walking in it. 


She attended North Carolina A&T State University, where she received a degree in a major completely unrelated to writing. However, attending an HBCU helped mold her into the woman she is today, making the student loan debt almost worth it.


Her purpose is to create stories, characters & content that positively impact the lives of others. Her mission? Easy... to change the narrative one book, one pen stroke and one key stroke at a time.

Pretty Pretty Black Girl is a poetic book of affirmations that speaks to the souls of black girls and women. In an era where social media can make or break one’s self esteem, it reminds us that likes don’t equal love and encourages us to find love inside ourselves first. This book empowers black women by reminding us that we are not broken, we are polished by adversity, allowing our light to shine through no matter the circumstance. These poetic mantras are what we all need when our knees begin to buckle and shake under the weight of the world. Pretty Pretty Black Girl is for the little black girl inside of us all that needs to know she is loved and not alone.
