    Brenda’s Child has made it her life’s mission to inspire people through poetry and stories and through leading by example with courage, confidence, and integrity. Born Latoya Bosworth, she began writing poetry at age 14 to cope with the death of her maternal grandmother, Ga-Ga. She dubbed herself Brenda's Child at the age of 21, in honor of her late mother Brenda Kay Swinton when she began performing spoken word. Brenda's Child has performed all over from her hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts, to Philadelphia, and across the coast to San Diego. She has been featured at numerous venues from nightclubs, to churches, college campuses and community organizations. Her poetry is currently featured in the Pen&Ink column of the community newspaper An African American Point of View . In April of 2007, Brenda's Child self-published her first book of poetry entitled A Piece of My Mind...Poetic Confessions of a Self-Proclaimed Diva. Since then she has published four more titles. Brenda's Child is also a columnist for Lioness Magazine , a special education teacher, and founder of the mentoring program “Keep Youth Dreaming and Striving”.
