Allow this to serve as an introduction to me. My name is Darshea and to try to sum myself up in so many words would be a disservice to you, the reader, and myself. So I’ll simply say I am.
I am many things. I am a lover, a friend, a daughter, a mother (fur babies). I am an enthusiast of music, generally before the 2000’s. I’m #TeamNatural as I have been off the creamy crack for 6 years but I only consider myself a two year-old natural because I flat ironed my hair for more than a year after relaxing. It seems like it took FOREVER for the heat damage to grow out, Then I decided to bleach my hair. So all in all, six year unrelaxed, 2 years totally natural. I am making my way slowly into the art world as well as foreign affairs. I am a public relations intern and soon to be graduate (woo hoo only 2 semesters left) and I work as a legal secretary in a labor and employment firm.
New Orleans is my home and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Though we have a love hate relationship, sometimes I wake up and it’s hard for me to believe I’m still here, still thriving. It’s only by the grace of Jesus, I know, that I haven’t had several mental breakdowns. With that said, even though I love my city, I cannot die here. I repeat, I cannot die in New Orleans. New Orleans right now doesn’t have the size or opportunity for me to be great. At least, that’s how I feel. I’m hoping within 5 years I’ll be making my way West. Now, I love the south and wouldn’t mind spending some time in Atlanta, briefly, or Texas. Ultimately, I’d love to end up in California.
In terms of career choices, I have no idea what I want to do with my life. Which at this stage in my life in problematic. I’m not exactly young, yet I’m still young enough to get a pass from elders stating that “I’ve still got time.” Granted, my boss didn’t even enroll in law school until she was 30. So I guess I have a few years to figure out if I just wasted 5+ years in college to get a BA in public relations or if I’m going to do something with that.
On a more light hearted note, I love to travel. I got my first taste of international travel at the tender age of 15. I traveled to London, Paris, Athens, and Rome on a 21 day tour with an organization called People to People. I’ve always been very interested in how others lived outside of the US. I guess that’s another thing I’d like to study…anthropology.
At the close of this year I plan to spend two weeks in Dubai and Thailand. I was first intrigued by Thailand’s political debauchery and uproar in middle of 2014 which lead to the ousting of their leader. I found the drama inviting and more so the people of Thailand in their protests both for and against the leader. I vowed then that I needed to see this country. So I made a vow to myself and asked that God enter into a covenant with me to help make this possible. Nothing is possible without faith and I have faith that can, will, and do move mountains. As of right now, funds are making themselves available to me. I asked Jesus to provide and now I have to be obedient to his order in order to receive. I’m on my way!!
I’d like to end this post with something that many people would balk at. I’m totally anti-America. I believe that America is the Great Satan. I feel like when people claim that America is the greatest country in the world, I’d like to see this poll they’ve taken that backs up that sentiment. I don’t feel like America is the greatest anything, but Satan. The country allows impart its pseudo-democratic ways on other countries, can never mind its own business yet boasts this greatness. Before America continues its high and mighty greatness speech why doesn’t it first cure the income gap, the numbers of those impoverished, the racism wars, pay equality, hunger and homelessness? Instead of telling Pakistan what they should be doing, why don’t you focus your energy on your own citizens for a change. America is too concerned with its international’s neighbors grass to realize its own is in need of a serious manicure.
That’s my two cents towards the bill.
