The more I love and accept myself the more I’m sure that God loves me. I don’t think any love compares to the love God has for me. Not even my mother loves me as a much as God loves me. God said “Ayesha I approve of you so you can approve of yourself”. I am not the type of person who tries to be someone I’m not. I’ll never forget Edi Giunta. I became a writer in her Memoir class. She said “Ayesha you are a writer”. She empowered me. I don’t know of one other professor in the English department that would’ve done that and open up her home to me and invited me to Memoirfests. I did not know that would’ve happened. I am writing my memoir I call Ayesha’s Story and I will continue writing poetry into my 40s and 50s. I will keep this writing blog too! The course I’m taking with The Institute of Children’s Lit is going well too! I’m working on Assignment Three and it’s supposed to be an exercise that is supposed to be 500 words.
