Self acceptance and what it means to me

I am so thankful that I am not what other people think and say about me for good or bad. I am Ayesha. I am God’s African American daughter and he approves of me. God holds my head up high and God reminds me “Ayesha this is who you are: you are my African American princess and daughter”. I have a Black Identity and God is responsible for that too. It’s really no secret that EBONY magazine is my favorite magazine. If I have a baby girl when she grows up she is going to go to Spelman College. I remember who I am because God smiled on me and Schizophrenia did not take my identity away. God healed all of my brokenness. God is a good good father and he has the best plan for me and for my life. The Harvard Extension School invited me to go there to get my Master in Liberal Arts and one day I will! That in itself is amazing! The Harvard brand and the Ayesha brand! Whoa!
