My name is Adnah Mckenna, 18 year old lover of all things words. Writing is basically how I think, process and understand the world. I discovered the small flame of writing when I was 10, and slowly but consistently, I kindled that fire by writing anything and everything that came to mind, which at the time was mostly poetry, but I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame, and I kept at it and the flame grew.
When I was 10 years old, I got the chance to write for the ‘Tune Magazine’. I wrote poems but my writing was also evolving and I wrote several articles too. At the age of 14, my writing went to the next level when I met Julius Mwebia – the Author of ‘Conceive Achieve’. I read his work and It was (and still is) a powerful and effective tool, that if read, can enlighten and if applied, can cause total transformation.
But powerful as it was, not many people of my age would comprehend the beautiful treasure that was his book. So we teamed up and wrote Conceive Archive For Teens, a book crafted specifically for that age. Nothing of the original work was excluded, wasted or thrown away. It was the same radical story just told through the eyes of a teenager, for a fellow teenager.
The flame is now a furnace, the book has evolved into a ministry and God is continuing to use it to transform lives for his glory and his honour. With the Purpose-full Teenager Program, young people are discovering their purpose at an early age, learning to manage time and use accountability towards becoming all God created them to be. I am extremely thankful to have been a part of what God is doing on the earth today! To learn more visit my website.
Here’s my author interview I did in 2018 after my book launch
I am grateful for the Mentorship from my dad and mom for guiding me through the steps of my life. I have achieved so much in the last 10 years. And that’s why I am passionate for teenagers to discover their talents early in life.
Last year I received a Youth Leadership Award from Josiah Kids USA at the Buford Harvest for the book and mentorship program.
This year I was named a Buford Harvest Ambassador. I am encouraging young people between 7-17 years to register. It’s an amazing platform to encourage your children and children in your community to get recognized for their hard work and efforts.
Here’s a poster to put a face to the name. I will be speaking in Crossroads Virtual Summit organized by Pst Samuel Mwinamo. You can register from the link below.
Who better to speak to young people than a fellow young person who is making moves in her own world? Adnah McKenna is proof that age is just a number. She has a number of wins under her belt at the tender age of 19. She wrote her first book Conceive Achieve for teens in her teens and runs a program that helps young girls find themselves and make something great out of it all. I am excited that she will be speaking on the topic ‘Your time is now’ At the Crossroads Virtual Summit to be held on 12 June 2021.
