BLOGGER INTERVIEW WITH NAKEISHA GEDDES
1. Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?
Hello my name is Nakeisha Geddes and I work in the Developmental Field. Over the years, I have been serving people without knowing it, and I now realized that serving people is my main purpose in life. I was a young lady who was alone in a world that could have swallowed her, but through God’s grace and Mercy I have overcome. Last year, I found myself in a state of depression, and with professional help, I was able to recognized that my past was the main reason for my depression, and I had to find a way to move forward. I started writing my story as a way of healing, and today I am proud to announce that I am an Author with and upcoming book title ‘My Cross Road”. My Women’s lifestyle blog will focus on almost anything, and everything to do with both motherhood and family. I will also touch on topics such as women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, personal and professional development. Health and wellness, faith, spirituality, and of course food. I’m drawing strength from my personal life and all things that make me smile.
