Quinton McDonald is an author/ entrepreneur from Little Rock, Arkansas.  He has a degree in Business from the University of Maryland.  As a self-published author, he currently has a children’s book for young girls of color titled Yes, you are beautiful too!. Its purpose is to promote more positive self-esteem in a society that praises certain “looks” more than others. He also has a children’s book for young boys of color, Dad, can I ask you a question? which promotes the notion that “you can accomplish anything you put your mind to regardless of circumstances.”

As an advocate for the power of positive thought, McDonald has had the opportunity to speak to multiple youth groups through community organizations and public schools.  His third book, 4 Children, 3 Baby Mommas, 2 Divorces Later…: What I learned from failing in my Relationships, addresses improving the quality of relationships. He takes his own experience and lessons learned and openly shares them to help others where they may need it. Because of this he has been invited to speak in several forums about common relationship issues and ways to overcome them.  Lastly, Quinton has been a member of the United States Navy for over 12 years and has served the country around the world.  Through all, his primary mission is to contribute to the improvement of the lives of people of color, especially the youth.
