Raven Magwood

Raven Magwood is an author and motivational speaker who is truly a force to be reckoned with. At 19 years old, she has accomplished more than most do in their lifetime. By 11, she was a national gymnastics champion. By 13, she had published her second book. By 15, she was a state titleholder in track-and-field competing nationally. By 16, she had graduated from high school number one in her class with a 5.1 GPA. By 18, she was in her junior year of college, simultaneously inspiring thousands of individuals in schools, organizations, and businesses with her moving testimony and captivating personality.

Now, the teenager has done it again with her latest release, The 7 Practices of Exceptional Student Athletes.

When asked about all of her success, Raven humbly replies: “When you’re dedicated to something you love, determined to work hard, and disciplined to plan how you’ll get there, then you can achieve success.”

Find books by Raven at Live Oak Libraries.
