Love /ləv/ noun
An intense feeling of deep affection.

Love isn’t just a word. Love is expressing feelings through deep emotions. My name is Zy’Keria and it took a mighty long time, for me to learn how to love myself. Throughout all the things that I have been through - I have to remember every day that I am brave, beautiful, and intelligent. No more will I let my past determine my future self, but let it be a lesson to learn from. On a daily basis you are going to have challenges and obstacles to overcome, but when you have a passion to do something - you are going to block out all of the negative energy, close doors that are not doing you any good, and strive for that goal! 

As a young lady transitioning into womanhood I can’t let anything or anyone delay me from accomplishing my goal at the top of the mountain! Every day when I wake up I thank God for keeping me on this earth for me to spread my love, and being able to encourage younger girls to embrace themselves! No Matter your size, color, or ethnicity! You are always going to be beautiful! I went through a stage when I was trying to find out who I was, who I wanted to be, and learning to embrace myself. Someone really close to me, helped me understand that I had an amazing soul inside and out. My heart is full of gold & passion, and I would be honored to spread mentally of showing people that embracing yourself is the best thing you have ever done. If you have “friends” that constantly want to see you hurting and struggling - trust me they are not your true friends. Do yourself some good, get something that you deserve. Don’t let others use, manipulate, or cause you to look down on yourself! Show them that they have NO control over you, and you're a POWERFUL WOMAN with many many possibilities & opportunities. “Know thyself, Accept thyself, LOVE thyself. No matter what you have done, where you have been, know, accept, and love who you are.” - Iyanla Vanzant
“LOVE, YOU”
