Lupita Samuels was born in Costa Rica, but she has lived in the United States for almost fifty years. She has been a dedicated, passionate, and effective educator who has taught in the New York City public school system for over twenty years. She has also taught Bible-based courses at the Spirit Life School at the Fordham Manor Church in the Bronx for many years.
Samuels was married and has two sons and five grandchildren. She also raised two nephews, Joey and Michael.
After her retirement from the NYC /DOE, she began to pursue her aspiration as a writer. The Color-Blind Series, aimed at changing the way most people see color in themselves and in others, is her first published work.
Ms. Samuels earned a bachelor’s degree from New York University and a master’s degree from Bank Street College of Education. But most of all, she aspires for that degree of unction from the Holy Spirit necessary to impact her writing—to impact not only the God-fearing community but the world at large
