Well, where should I start? My name is Naziah, but people call me “Z” for short. Before joining this writing program, I shut every one out. The only place I’d share my life was in my Diary. I always thought, “No one cares. No one loves me.” No matter how many times they said it, I still wouldn’t believe they loved and cared for me!
I was sooo depressed at the time, that I asked the LORD to take me away from this earth. I know I was being selfish for asking God to take my life away.😖 I cried til I couldn’t cry anymore. So, instead of crying I turned to smoking weed to kill my pain from depression. No one knew how deep of a state of depression I was in. No one would ever have known just how lonely my soul was. So much pain behind this pretty face.
Before I joined this writing program, I also suffered from low self-esteem. I hid it, and dealt with it at home. I used to call myself all types of names, until I turned to God and asked Him to bless me with a job so that I could bless others. And look what God did! I am not only an intern with Writing for the Soul Workshop™, my teammates selected me as our Program Coach. THANK YOU LORD😍❤IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!
My Impact To Help Fund our Programs
My name is Naziah, and I am a student at McClellan Magnet High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. When I joined Writing for the Soul Workshop™, I simply wanted to share my story to encourage kids that are may be battling depression and low self-esteem. But when I was selected for the Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Internship Program, I realized that I could do so much more to help them.
As an intern here at Writing for the Soul Workshop™, I’m learning skills in sales that will give me an edge in the career that I choose later in life. But the best part of my job is giving away copies of books published by our writing program. Every donation I secure, or sale I make means that one of my peers will get life-saving books for free.
Writing for the Soul Workshop™ is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Writing for the Soul Workshop™ are tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law. You can support our work by clicking on the “Donate Today” button to make a one-time contribution.
