Ever since Crystal Gail Welcome was a little girl, she has been enthralled with writing…the pen, the paper, the finished product. As an adult, she continues to write. Before she wrote privately in journals and letters to friends, but now she writes to share her experiences with others.
Crystal Gail grew up in Orange Park, Florida. Shortly after graduating high school, she ventured to New York City to attend college. Two weeks after receiving her Bachelors of Arts she traveled to a small village in Kenya. There, her mornings were spent planting trees in the Kenyatta National Forest. Come afternoon, she would walk nearly five miles to teach literature at a secondary school. Crystal Gail’s time in Kenya proved instrumental in helping her uncover her love for education.
As a former teacher, Welcome knows the importance of leading by example. Through her actions, she wants others to realize that all things are possible. Each day, Crystal Gail strives to create something memorable. When she succeeds, she motivates others.
