Meet 12 year old Stacey Fru, Africa’s youngest award winning author. 

Stacey Fru is a Johannesburg based fun-loving and bubbly Bestselling Multiple International Award-Winning Child Author of Chapter Books, Activist, Philanthropist, Public Speaker, Ballerina and Guitarist. Stacey was born in 2007 in Johannesburg as the 2nd of 4 children. 

Now Author of 5 books, Stacey is the youngest Author in Africa, if not the world, who wrote her first book; ‘Smelly Cats’ without her parents’ knowledge at the age of 7. This book was approved by the South African Department of Basic Education as suitable for young learners from Early Childhood through to Primary Schools. Stacey won 3 awards for this book and her other works before her 2nd book ‘Bob and the Snake’ was published.

Stacey’s ambitions for the growth of the African child is extensive. She is a philanthropist and the youngest Ambassador for Save the Children. Stacey is focused on teaching, motivating and encouraging others through public talks, writings, and her television projects because she is very disappointed that many children cannot read and write by age 9.
