I know who I am. I am a person who has a secure identity.

I remember my childhood and it was hard sometimes because I got teased a lot. The things I share in my memoir I’m sure many African Americans can probably say “I can relate to Ayesha’s story more.” Now that I’m older I surprise myself. This was definitely not true at all for me as a child but the change when I started to like myself I was in my early 30s. I like myself so much more now. I treat myself. I’m honest about my life experience and I think that’s why more people can relate to my memoir. To be honest about your experiences in life is to find more people will say it makes it easier for people to relate to. Readers may say “I can relate to this person’s story more because they rendered their experiences or what it was really like for them. They were so honest about their life experiences.
