Reflections By Clay Wesley


By Clay Wesley, WLP alum ’09

When you look at me, what do you see?

A stereotype? Or a typical “black girl”?

I am much more than that.

I am not only strong I am educated. I am unstoppable.

I will always be more than what they think about me.

I don’t fail. I always get back up.

I am resilient.

I have the power to be anything I put my mind to.

I am not a ghetto bitch.

My name is Eclasia

My core is always centered and I don’t take any shit

Strength is an understatement when it comes to the Black Woman

I thrive

Whatever anyone thinks of me is none of my concern.

I’m going to do whatever pleases me

I’m beautiful and melanin-filled
