I am happy to be able to help my Mentees. Some of them are African American and I work at Mercer. I try to be helpful to all of my Mentees. Some of them are Caucasian and others are Hispanic. They are all very nice and I have been able to connect with almost all of them. Sometimes when I meet a new Mentee at the beginning of the semester I introduce myself to them to familiarize myself with their names as well.
Find something to be grateful for in your life. If you make a list of ten things you are really grateful for you’ll put a smile on God’s face.
These be the times when I surprise myself. I’m nominated for an award for blogging.
Ayesha you were such a pretty little black girl. You were bullied a lot and you were victimized. All of the kids that didn’t like you were jealous of you. I know if I told that you would start to like yourself in your 30s you’d say “wow that fast.” I really want to say younger self-remember to forgive yourself and to be forgiving of others. My family always had means we were middle class we were not rich. I feel good about my values and the way I was raised. My identity was fashioned in my childhood so I know if I remembered my dolls were always African American I’d think of my mother and Kwanzaa memorabilia and black dolls things I’m thankful for.
Writing is my favorite hobby.
Do not bleach your skin or dye your hair those crazy colors trying to look white. Black is beautiful! Embrace YOU.
This year make sure you vote. We elected a real idiot of a man Donald Trump our president. In 2020 we can’t re-elect Trump in 2020 he’s out.
I was spelling it great-ful instead of grateful. I feel grateful for my life and all the times people helped me or reached out to me.
