Maisha and I met when was 17 years old, and Lord knows I needed her at that time! As a 17 year old girl, I felt alone, unstable and lost. What I needed was a family unit at the time and my family wasn't really there for me. I felt like I had to be more mature than I truly was. I was under her wing and she gave me advice.
Maisha pushed me to continue until I graduated and the two most important things is she gave me time and love.
If it wasnt for her, I would truly be lost. She gave me a confidence that a mother gives her child. The fact that I wasn't her flesh an blood you would never be able to tell, and for that I am thankful. You can chop and manuver it how you want, but the gist of it is this, she took a lost teenager and gave me so much hope, purpose and love, because I was lost confused and hurt!
I have known Maisha Lewis Ceaser for 6 years and she is one of my dearest, truest friends and the only person who addresses me as "Dorothy Potter." When I met her our friendship was almost immediate. I feel like I've known her for most of my life as opposed to just 6 short years. She is one of the kindest individuals I know and people are naturally drawn to her because of her huge heart, ability to listen when you have a problem or just need to talk, and her loving spirit. She has always been there for me when I needed a friend or some kind of help and I know she always will be. Quite simply, she is the best and someone I welcome in to my life.

During a time when my life was in turmoil, I felt I had more than I could handle. Maisha’s innate guidance showed me the path back to God and gave me renewed faith in His plan for me. He brought me to it and He also brought me through it with Maisha’s inspirational support. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t thank God every day for bringing her into my life.
Maisha gave me amazing guidance to deal with relationships in general. She taught me how to see each situation as an opportunity to practice God’s teachings … to see each other’s points of view and come to an understanding, a compromise, and/or acceptance … whatever the case may be. Maisha has also imparted to me wisdom to not fall apart and give into stress and self-wallowing, but to remain faithful to God and rely on His guidance in every situation.
