  4. Khadijah,

    I was checking out Marita Golden’s upcoming workshop and saw your name and thought to myself I knew a girl with that name back in elementary school in Silver Spring, could it be her? When I saw it I got goosebumps and began reading your essay. OMG, I can’t believe it after all these years, I haven’t seen you since then and you still look the same. I don’t even know if you remember me or not, but as a former classmate and friend, I’m blessed to see how God has used you. The once quiet flower blossomed into an extraordinary woman. Congrats on your success! Please email me if you remember me, it would be a pleasure to hear from you.
