While other children her age were busy with games and outdoor activities, Natalie McGriff was writing a new superhero comic book.

Now, the 7-year-old is the proud author of The Adventures of Moxie Girl.

The comic book tells the tale of a little black girl who hates her natural hair texture. After cleansing her Afro puffs with some magical shampoo, her textured coils take on super powers that have the ability to save Jacksonville, Florida’s public libraries from being eaten by monsters.

Natalie presented The Adventures of Moxie Girl at One Spark, the world’s largest crowdfunding festival designed to connect creators with the resources they need to bring their ideas to life. Her comic book was a win;  the young author took home a check for $16 423,69 (R200 683,49).

According to the New Pittsburgh Courier, Moxie Girl was created after Natalie's mother noticed her daughter having hair-esteem issues.
