Myeisha Brown is a teenager. 

A 17 year old female who is full of life and promise, Myeisha is a natural leader. When you first meet Myeisha, she comes across as quiet and reserved, but it doesn’t take long for her bubbly personality to break through. In every conversation, Myeisha is brainstorming about how she can help others. Her heart beats to reach youth like herself who need good role models in their lives to encourage them and help them discover their talents and gifts.

Because of her passion to help others, she has been studying and preparing to take her GED in hopes of attending Fisk University. Myeisha loves learning and is highly intelligent. She dreams of becoming a psychologist so she can walk alongside kids who face similar circumstances that she once found herself in. Because she takes her responsibilities so seriously, I have no doubt she will achieve her goal, in fact she already is.

This past Spring, Myeisha was part of a writing project that was presented with actors. One of Myeisha’s many talents is her prolific writing. She was honored to be a part of this writing workshop that had the potential to inspire the Nashville community. After the workshop, she was so excited to learn that her words and story gave others hope and a passion to be involved in the lives of other kids to prevent them from entering into the system. Myeisha believes writing is one way she can express her story to encourage others. She writes with great purpose and intention because she recognizes her words carry meaning and can either build up or tear down others.

Myeisha’s heart is so big and she is always thoughtful. Her tender heart and humble spirit allow her to constantly be giving to others. She is a protector of everyone she holds dear and that is so many people, given she never meets a stranger. She is perceptive and shows concern when she perceives that others are stressed or hurting. One time in detention, she was sharing a cell with another youth that was afraid of thunderstorms. This youth said that Myeisha would talk to her and sing so she wouldn't be afraid and could go to sleep.   That’s who Myeisha is, an encourager. She’s strong and vulnerable all in the same breath and she loves people with her whole heart, especially her family.

Myeisha has a zest for life that few people know.  She is funny. Like the kind of funny that you think about hours later and find yourself chuckling under your breath. Those who know Myeisha are better for it. She is a rare gem of a person that comes along once in a lifetime.  She is the kind of person that you meet and you instantly know that the purpose of her life is big and that purpose will be fulfilled. Her voice is strong and she wants to use it to change and better the lives of others. She is passionate about justice, passionate about people, and one of the strongest, bravest, best people I’ve ever known. She is a beautiful young lady whose life holds incredible potential.

Thank you for any help that you can give.
