The Point of my “19 & Moving” blog is to show you all that life throws many things at you. In my eyes the experiences
are what makes someones character. Someone who is in their seventies may have way more experiences than someone who is nineteen. But is it not the type of experiences? Is it so that you have to be elderly in order to say that you know what you are talking about?
Here, to start off “19 & Moving” I am going to give you all a little back story. I feel as though you should know the author you are reading about or taking advice from. My opinions and/or life events are not to intimidate or offend anyone.
My name is Nyazhja. It is pronounced Ny-Asia. Simple now, right? I come from a single parent home and have three younger siblings. I was born but not raised in Lakewood, New Jersey. I am a proud mix of Bahamian and Puerto Rican. No, I am not bilingual, I wish I was though.
In my younger years, my mom tells me that I was a good child, I didn’t cry or anything, potty trained early, learned how to read and write early, pretty much the child everyone wants. But, as my other siblings slowly started to show up I became corrupted pushing and biting my siblings, mocking them and taking their toys because I wanted them too, you know, the usual big sister things. My sister Jhadeya is 17(she stresses me out), next is my brother Jadin (my favorite..shhhh) he is 15, and last but not least the evil.. I mean Jalynn she’s 9. I HOLD MY SIBLINGS IN MY HEART OVER EVERYTHING.
I mentioned a single parent home earlier. I give all thanks to my mother. She may irk my soul and push my buttons like no one else ever will… but she is the one that was always there and at the end of the day, I will do anything for my mother. I also have to give many thanks to my grandmother, she is continuously there for us when we needed help. I absolutely love these two women. My father was around here and there, don’t get me wrong as cool or whatever you want to call it, but I didn’t need another friend I needed a parent. He isn’t my mom and she most definitely is not him.
As many rough times my family and I have had, I always had my outlets which include; reading, music, any type of art, school, and track. There is so much you guys will learn about me, experinces you would of never thought I have been through. I usually do not write, but hey, lets see where this blogging thing brings me.
I am currently a sophomore in college, Graphic design major with a general business minor. I appreciate how much art plays a role in my life. When I was younger I was probably the worst drawer ever. Then one day I sat down picked up a pen and there it was, my first drawing. In my later years, I picked up photography. I may post some of my pieces on here in later blogs.
The point of “19 & Moving” is to share with you my everday experinces and opinions. To show you who I am and how my experiences molded me into who I am today. but, for right now im gonna end with this:
The choices you make in life can only hurt you when you don’t learn anything.
