HARLEM, NY (Black PR Wire) – “The Queen of Harlem Commandments” is the first book by Michelle Smalls, a Harlem powerhouse who turned her pain into prosperity by following a code of conduct she first learned living the life of a street boss.

Smalls’ journey is not unlike many young women of color living in the inner cities who learn early in life how to rise above pain, loss, and disappointment.

Through it all, the Queen made no excuses. Instead, she made commandments.

Her book shares Smalls’ moments of heartache, triumphs, betrayals and disloyalty. She believes in order to survive and be successful in the hustle of life, you must respect the Code and follow the Commandments. An influencer, serial entrepreneur, real estate broker and philanthropist, Smalls’ goal is to put smiles on the faces of young people, by way of giving back to the community at large. For over a decade as a social impact leader, she has placed a high priority on youth and the community.

Smalls intuitively sees the needs and desires, and focuses on problemsolving. She takes action and hosts charity events such as her Christmas Toys and Coat Drives, Community Halloween Parties, back to school drives, preparing teens for their proms, and having an all-girls basketball team. A pillar in the Harlem community, Smalls is transforming the lives of youths by empowering them with love and opportunities that could build a tighter bond in our lifetime.
