My name is Nia Alexa & I'm from The Bronx, NY. I decided to start a blog mainly to share my poetry. I have been writing for years and felt that poetry helped me get through hard times in my life. My poetry describes certain points in my life and my growth. I've named the blog Lessons & Blessings because everyone has dealt with one or the other. I've learned to turn all my lessons into blessings and I want others to be able to do the same.
