Hemingway, native Alexandria Leggette has currently self-published her first book entitled Confessions Of A Christian Black: Pieces Of Me. After graduating from Carvers Bay High School in 2012, Leggette began to search for her purpose in life. Growing up with insecurities and low self-esteem she grabbed hold of art and writing and began to create poems and drawings that helped her to freely express herself.
Leggette said as a child she was subjected to verbal and sexual abuse that silently haunted her for years because she was to afraid to speak out about it.
In Confessions Of A Christian Black Girl: Pieces Of Me she finds the courage to speak; hoping to inspire and empower young ladies to use their voice against life’s curveballs.
Giving a transparent account of her encounters--including experiences with severe depression, attempted suicide, addictions and more, she portrays her encounter with life in the midst of hell. Leggette said she hopes to shed light on many unspoken issues in young ladies lives and introduce them to the power of love, which assisted her in conquering her past and guiding her future. Confessions Of A Christian Black: Pieces Of Me was scheduled for release August 4, on Amazon and Kindle.
