      I decided to live an sexual abstinent lifestyle at the age of 13 and have stayed committed. In 2017, I published my book 

The Decison, providing tips on livinge the abstinence lifestlye. I soon realized that 

abstinence was not being talked about, though there were thousands of people living the lifestyle. So,I set out to make abstinence visible.

I longed to have a teacher that I could see myself in and be taught by. A teacher that did not overlook me, but saw my potential.  Well, in 2007, that day came as I stepped onto the Campus of Thee Elizabeth City State University. For the next four years I would swim in that sea with black scholars, being taught by teachers who looked liked me and pushed me to succeed. I would be chosen to be apart of scholar programs that allowed me to travel as far as South Africa to conduct research for two months. As you read this I want you to understand why this was so special to me. I was a student who for most of my life was deemed as having behavioral problems. Who was happy when she would see a C on her report card (and those came far and few). It was not until high school that I began to sprout, but it was my beloved HBCU that watered me to bloom. To bloom into the author, speaker and entrepreneur I am today. I tear up as I write this. Reason being, is I know it was being around young black scholars, taught by professors who didn't allow me to settle for anything less than a B and the many words spoken into me  while attending my HBCU that gave me the confidence to go into the world and blaze the trails I have. - Shakia

“Shakia was so refreshing in our women who “Know Your Worth” event night.

She came and poured out rich content to the ladies of the church.

She instilled confidence and brought transparency along with humor.

You have to experience her. She’s truly dope! “
