Author Biography

Michelle Davey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is passionate about empowering women. After experiencing her own traumatic events, she pursued a career as a mental health therapist. Michelle has had the honor of meeting many amazing women who have allowed her to walk with them on their healing journeys. Whether healing from trauma, abuse, low self-esteem, or unhealthy relationships, there was a common thread woven through their stories - their own VOICES could not be heard.

Michelle knew she needed to empower our girls to discover—or rediscover— and use their VOICES before they become the broken women sitting in her chair. This very thought, along with inspiration from her eight-year-old daughter and co-author Laiya, is what encouraged her to write this book.

Michelle is the founder of Our Wings of Hope (www., an online platform that provides women with essential resources. She and her husband have three children and reside in Maryland. Michelle enjoys morning walks, roller skating, and reading books with her youngest daughter, Laiya, who is also the co-author of My Voice Is My Superpower.

Some of us recall the adage that children should be seen and not heard. Unfortunately, that is still very much the case for women and young girls around the world. But what if we spoke up and claimed our place? Michelle Davey and Laiya Davey show readers how in My Voice is My Superpower. What can young girls do to claim this voice? Speak up to the bully who threatens our safety, or take your voice to the nearest person of authority and tell them what happened. Speak up with joy and contentment and a sense of purpose, for girls of all ages can do anything. Feel good about yourself and remind yourself that “I am a voice and tell myself, I love you. You are beautiful, you are smart, you are special and you have a voice too!” We are who we say we are and how we present ourselves to the world.

Michelle Davey and Laiya Davey’s picture book, My Voice is My Superpower, is an empowering story for young girls to encourage them to believe in themselves. Told in simple language so young readers can easily follow and by using varied font styles to add emphasis, the plot follows girls with unique qualities as they make their way through the day, frequently declaring “I am a voice.” Girls’ voices from around the world ultimately display their special superpowers by making themselves heard and repeating what they have learned from the Scriptures. Many of the affirmations are accompanied by an applicable quote from the Bible. The illustrations are bold and beautiful, just like the girls portrayed in the story. Empower the young girls in your life with this superpower story.
