Sheetal Sheth

“There’s no greater joy than when a child stands a little taller or sits a little straighter because you’ve connected with them. It is a privilege to create for children and I take that responsibility to heart. Everyone has a story to tell and my goal is to inspire each child to find theirs. To cultivate their voice and share their hearts in ways only they can.”


Sheetal Sheth is an acclaimed actress/producer, and author of the popular Anjali series, the first and only illustrated book series featuring an Indian American girl hero.

She has delivered talks and keynotes at festivals and charity galas and has had op-eds published on CNN, The Daily Beast, and Thrive Global. She is one of the founders of the non-profit 1001 Diverse Books and is an ambassador for the global literacy non-profit Room to Read. She served in AmeriCorps and is currently on the board of SAYA and the advisory board of Equality Now. Her latest picture book, Making Happy, brings mental health and processing feelings to the forefront.
