The Power of Passion
People tell me that they feel my passion when I speak about my vision to create dolls, books, children’s shows, music and empowerment centers for youth and young adults. They say they feel it when I play drums, recite poetry, in books I write and in how I embrace life. Passion is electricity. It is power and it turns everything on.
The energy, excitement and enthusiasm that I felt when I first started on the “Here Comes Niya” journey some years ago, is that same passion that kept me on the path; even when I wanted to walk away. My passion is sparked out of a need—a need for all children to know that they matter and that they are enough!
