Check Out Evette Henderson’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Evette Henderson.

Evette, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I write poetry. I’m a self published author. I have two books that I have written and published. My first book are random poems. Some of the poems are about me and some of the poems are about different people and their problems. My second book is about my life. This book is very personal, sensitive, and open. I poured my heart into this book. I had to write the book in a poem format to keep me from crying. My story need to be told and this was the only way that I could do it, without someone trying to stop me.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it has not been a smooth road. I was struggling to reveal the truth. I was afraid to be vulnerable. Not telling my story, was eating me up inside. I had to tell myself that I can help others if I tell my story.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I write poetry. I can write a poem about anything. I’m honestly proud of my book, My Life in a Poetic Type of Way. I was very creative with it. I love the way that I told my story in a “poetic” way. I don’t think anyone has written a book like this.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Me having passion. My creativity and me being optimistic.
