Christina: What is your SwagHer? What makes Necia, Necia?

Necia: My Swagher is being able to show my talent and share my story with others after having so much doubt and fear and being stuck on so many pathways trying to figure out who I am and who I want to be. what makes me who I am today is all the sacrifices and struggles and the rough childhood I had growing up as a sick child and not having nobody by my side thinking that they loved and cared about me and the whole time, I was just their door mat and their target. 

Christina: How has your personal experiences and challenges shaped your journey as an author, entrepreneur, poet, and speaker? 

Necia: My personal experiences shaped my journey as an author, entrepreneur, etc is when I couldn’t express myself because I wasn’t taught, I just picked up a journal and wrote how I felt every day it was my escape I never wanted to get involved with writing or poetry, but I got inspired by Ms.Maya Angelou and other poets and figured I’ll give it a try. 

Christina: Tell us a little bit about your debut poetry book, “The Ride of My Life”. Where can readers go to purchase? 

Necia: “The Ride of My Life” is my first poetry book, which debuted on March 13, 2024.

People can purchase my book on Amazon and Black Gold Publishing. 

Christina: What inspired you to start two distinctly different businesses, From The Heart Foundation and This N That Enterprise?  What are your mission and goals for each business?

This N That Enterprise is my second business, which I started when I lost my job due to medical and family issues that I had to take care of. My business goal is to become and stay profitable and accomplish every aspect.
