What’s up! What’s up! What’s up! (In my Martin voice)
I am so excited to be a part of this fabulous team of go-getters and achievers for My Melanin Rocks! I have always wanted to be a part of social media platform geared towards empowerment and change so I’m extremely excited. This will be my first time contributing to an online magazine. I am anxious and excited but ready for the challenge!
Now lets get to this introduction shall we……
I’m Aieshia but most people call me Sheesh. I am 26 yrs old going on 30 in my head. I am from Atlanta, GA, the home of the Braves, JR Crickets (best wings ever), trap music and ratchet black Hollywood.
I have pretty much been an athlete since birth; I came out the womb running, literally. I am a former track and field collegiate student athlete for Tulane University in New Orleans, LA … ROLLWAVE, GREENWAVE ALL DAY. Unfortunately I acquired an injury that forced me to stop running competitively. During that time, I suffered a lot of mental distress. With the platform that I have been given, I plan on discussing mental health and athletics since this issue does not get the proper attention it currently deserves.
On another note, I am extremely health conscious. I have a Bachelors and Master’s degree in Public Health. I am all about living healthy and making sure everyone around me is somewhat adopting the lifestyle. Spiritual, mental and physical health is all very important in life. So, I will be giving my tips on living healthy which include but are not limited to: reading edifying material, exercising, eating healthy, journaling and mental health awareness.
I encourage everyone to be comfortable in his or her own skin. Being a light to the world, humble, understanding and forever unique!
Peace and Blessings
