  • Our Story

    My name is Ms Sonya. I am a mother of one and have been an RN for over 20 years. My daughter, Rhiana, started journaling as a child and recognized the need for a writing journal specifically for millennial women of color like herself - Crowned Journal. I was instantly interested. I needed to be a major part of creating Crowned Journal. Rhiana and I immediately decided that not only did we want a journal with plenty of pages for writing any and everything; but, we also wanted a section with many of the topics that today’s young woman finds most important for growth and fun.


    There is no other group of people that I have such a deep sense of pride and adoration for. Your determination has resulted in experiences and accomplishments that many my age did not achieve until later in life, if at all. As a mother and nurse, protector and supporter, I needed for Crowned Journal to be a safe, fun, comfortable place that helps keep you focused on all that you desire in spite of life’s distractions.


    There are so many celebrating all that you are. Please never stop pursuing those things that bring you true happiness, positive growth and absolute joy. It’s because of you that Crowned Journal exists!


    Thanks for being such an inspiration, ladies!!💕 Stay safe!

    (I’m not a fan of taking pictures. Had to be coerced a little. Love you Rhi😘😊).
