Rukaya Williams is a student at Truman State University. She originally wrote this poem to express how she views black women. As she thought about it some more, she realized that she fit those adjectives also. She loves uplifting other black women and believes in positive self esteem boosts keep the soul happy. She hopes her poem gives a little light into another black woman's heart and soul as she reminds herself how AWESOME she is!
