About Destiny Likambi:
Destiny Likambi is a 5-year-old Cameroonian-British from Liverpool, England. She’s the last of three adorable and loving siblings (and younger sister of Liverpool’s outgoing youngest bestselling Author of Three Books, Latoya Likambi). She is a very audacious, courageous, and confident little girl with a very wide imagination. She’s also quite chatty and often refers to herself as a “chatter box” and fondly referred to as the passionate and energetic speaker of the house, who almost never stops talking.
Her passion for storytelling and art goes back to her nursery days when she always looked forward to telling everyone about her day in the nursey and often brought home some drawings and paintings. She also loves reading, listening to bedtime stories, and making up/ telling her own stories before bed. Her love for storytelling and art gave birth to her debut book and 2 other books to be published in October. All of the illustrations in the book were done by her and later sent to a professional artist (whom she gave specific instructions to and requested several amendments to ensure that her original concept and piece of art was maintained). She also came up with the title of each her books and decided that all her book series would be published under the name “Destiny Books”. Little Destiny is a very loving, kind, and caring little girl with a truly adorable and grounded personality. She never stops putting a smile on the faces of her siblings and parents, and always amazes them with some “unexpected” new vocabulary and expressions.
