About Teya Knightingale: Teya Knightingale is 15 years old. Diverse Minds means a lot to Teya, and seeing her story in schools would be a dream and an honour. Teya believes that the most wonderful thing about Diverse Minds is that the contest is based around diversity, something she cares so much about. To Teya, diversity is such an essential topic to learn about, especially for younger children.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Teya spent five years helping out daily in her school’s kindergarten classrooms. During those years, Teya read many fantastic stories to kids, which inspired her to create her own. She has been drawing for her whole life, and art is one of her passions. Teya truly enjoys sitting down and getting creative on paper. It brightens her day and calms her down. She first wrote a children’s book when she was in Grade Three. Ever since, Teya has loved writing children’s stories. When she’s not creating, Teya enjoys yoga and pilates, as well as spending time with her three adorable cats.
