Keosha Sath is a mom, sister, friend, momprenuer, federal government worker, and writer. She comes from a large family of 13 children—4 siblings from her mom and 8 siblings from her dad. Sath was born and raised in Kinston, North Carolina, and after college she picked up her things and moved to Washington, D.C. for a federal government job. Keosha is an alumna of East Carolina University. During undergrad is where she grew her own yogurt in class and developed a strong passion for lab sciences. This created her strong desire for educating the youth all about science and encouraging them to think about obtaining science, technology, engineering, and mathematics jobs.
She originally started a young adult novel but has yet to finish it. Sath admits that she wrote a children’s book to learn the ropes before she started trying to get her novel published. Her first published book, Just Like You (Mascot Books, December 2018), is a story that came from her heart because of a conversation that she had with her daughter. One evening around bedtime, her daughter told her she wanted to be a doctor. In shock, Sath asked her daughter if she really wanted to be a doctor, and her daughter said, “I think so.” Her debut book has since scored multiple book signings at Barnes and Nobles, in Ashburn, Virginia and in Frederick, Maryland. Also, Sath was invited to an author event at Bunker Hill Elementary School in Washington, D.C. and was featured in a full-page article in the local media in her hometown of Kinston, North Carolina. In March, her book was added to the Frederick County Public Library’s book catalog. Just Like You has become popular with bloggers and international bookstores worldwide. Sath lives in Monrovia, Maryland with her husband and two daughters.
