Many people in my life asked me this one question, “What went wrong?”. Everyone seems to think the reason that I went to Anasazi was that one certain event or one person turned my whole life into a mess. This is where they are wrong. It wasn't what went wrong or who did wrong to me, it is what did I, personally, do wrong. Which mistakes did I make and how did I let those effect me? Sadly the answer is I made a lot of mistakes and I let each one crush my heart and soul in their own individual ways.

After anasazi though, I no longer hid. I am open and will tell anyone who is willing to listen, my story and I think it's time I finally wrote it for all to see.
I, Kiya Osha, was born in the south of Texas where I lived until I was 6. I was the youngest of 5 children and I craved attention. Both of my parents worked and my siblings picked on me and fought with me a lot so I felt alone most of my childhood. The only times I didn't feel lonely were when I was with my babysitter Maggie. She was my mother. She cared for me and loved me, she hugged and kissed me, she spent all sunday morning...
