About the author

Meah K. Tweh (1985-) was born in Detroit, Michigan, in a two-parent household. Growing up as the daughter of a Liberian immigrant, and a Pittsburgh native, Meah had a colorful upbringing as she learned about her rich African ancestry. Growing up with an abundance of artistic inspiration around her, she has grown into a creative spirit. Meah is an alumna of Detroit's award-wining Renaissance High School (2003) and is also an alumnus of Michigan's only urban public research university, Wayne State University (2008). Her life experiences and her participation in various creative endeavors would ultimately lead her to publish her first full-length volume of poetry entitled "Color Me Beautiful and Other Poems about Life, Love and Dreams", and the mini-book teaser "Designer Diva" available on Amazon.com's Kindle. Meah is an inquiring mind and is currently a candidate for a Masters degree in Art Education facilitating art activities across the United States and abroad. Her artwork and poems are featured in exhibitions within the city of Detroit and across the United States.
