Meet the Founder

Jenae Tien is the founder of Expand Your Library. She’s also an author, media and communication professional, multimedia producer, and mother of two. Jenae is currently continuing her postgraduate studies at QUT with a Graduate Certificate of Education with specific focus on Autisum.

Jenae is passionate about diversity and helping children embrace and respect each other.

After a play date where her daughter was made to feel different due to her skin tone, Jenae created Deck of Diversity, a deck of cards with explanations, questions and affirmations to encourage early conversations about inclusion and cultural diversity in a fun way.

It’s important for parents and educators to give children the tools to appreciate all people and themselves.

Children deserve to be given the tools they need to discuss cultural diversity and inclusion at a young age so that they grow up with an appreciation for all people—and love of self!
