Aurelia has always been in love with words. At the age of four, she found her mother’s copy of “Julius Caesar” and read it from cover to cover and has since devoured many pieces of literary works that even adults may find daunting.Aurelia’s mom, Susan Ibrahim.
The success of Aurelia Ibrahim at such a tender age in one of the world’s most competitive and challenging fields is yet another beautiful example of a parent’s ability to recognize a child’s latent talents and abilities and help them to harness it. This key concept is the backbone of the success story of young Guyanese author, Aurelia Ibrahim, who is the published author of two books: “A Little Poet’s World,” and “A Picturesque Journey” – both poetry collections.
Aurelia Ibrahim was born on the 16th of March, 2008. Her mom, Susan, is a make-up artist by profession and CEO of SAKS Makeup Artistry. Her dad, Shafwaz, is an architectural engineer, and founder and CEO of SAKS Consultant and Drafting Corps in Georgia, USA. Aurelia has just one sibling, 9-year-old Kate Ibrahim who is currently a student of Mae’s Primary School.
Aurelia attended Mae’s Nursery and Primary in Georgetown, Region 4, Guyana, South America. She then moved on to Marian Academy where she is presently in Grade 10 (Form 4).
The young Aurelia was passionate about writing, art, and literature from a very tender age, and she was showered with literature books and other reading material from “since she was a baby.” However, Aurelia’s mom, Susan, relates that it was Aurelia’s 5th grade teacher, Shelly, who first noticed the young girl’s exceptional writing talent and brought it to her mother’s attention.
The poem was “Secret Garden.” Teacher Shelly asked to see me and her exact words were, “Susan you have a talented daughter, and you should publish her writing. Waste no time.” And I followed her advice, and it was months after…she was still 10…that we officially launched her book…which was September 2018.Aurelia’s Mom, Susan Ibrahim
Aurelia, with the help of her mother, published her book, a collection poems, at the tender age of ten.
In mid-2022, Aurelia released her second book, “A Picturesque Journey.” Among the 36 poems featured in “the “the Picturesque Journey” is “Women’s Day”, a tribute Aurelia penned to women around the world.
