Nekala Rosetta is in a class of her own. This Sagittarian writer is always packed for her next adventure. When she’s not writing in her journal, reading a book, or taking selfies, you can find her asleep on her yoga mat in shavasana pose. Go be, Free.

 

 
 
“I don’t think people who really love art care if I’m a woman or a man. My job as a creator is to deliver the highest vibrations through my divine talent. Because art always speaks for itself, people will connect to it regardless of my gender.”

    "If people read any of my writing, even my bland Instagram captions and find some kind of peace then I'm happy. I've done my service. I just want to tell my story and keep it real with people. Whoever connects with that is cool with me, even if it's just one person."

   At a young age Nekala knew she was creative. She always wanted to sing, to dance, and to play pretend with friends. Every year she asked for a journal for Christmas. However, she soon strayed from a life of passion in pursuit of being a scholar. Even though it was euphoric getting her Bachelor’s degree she felt as if pressure from everyone bullied her into working for someone else's dream. It was then that she decided for herself that if she had to be on a payroll, it would be for what she believed in.


Getting into poetry was not a thought for this young artist. Nekala hails from a family of expressive people. Her father, as she describes, “was an indescribably amazing writer [that] taught her the nature of the game.”
 

“When we traveled on road trips I would sit in the back of the car reading his poems aloud. I fell in love with words and the medium through which I channeled that love became poetry, though I write in plenty of other forms.”

As an artist she finds it challenging to be expressive in today's world especially, in a social media driven society where others are ready to share an unsolicited opinion. However once she got through the intimacies of sharing her work with the public, she found herself not caring about sharing what she wrote.
 It used to be really hard for her to communicate her thoughts without writing them out first. She reminisces on the times when she could only compose a poem if she was really hurt or madly in love.

As described, it was the two worst extremes. For inspiration she’ll look back and read a folder containing her “teenage-angst” poetry, and often cringe but, it helps put her journey into perspective. Nekala is proud of how hard she's worked to get where she is.  It took a ton of commitment, poor writing, and discovering her voice to be where she is right now. What’s amazing is that she holds these moments close to her because they made her the writer she is today.

“Where would I be without poetry? I can’t imagine.”
