"I always knew there was MORE out there" says LeQuita Vance-Watkins. And what that 'more' was, was her new wonderful friends from high school and 'the Arts.' They'd spend hours and hours listening to classical music and opera and getting lost in reading all the classics. Going to the cinema to watch films together and endless conversations is what fulfilled her.
My guest was a baby when her unmarried teen mom left her with her abusive grandmother for ten years, and yet she harbors no ill will toward anyone. "i was always told, I could never do nothin right," LeQuita mentions though she seems to have done everything right.
She kept moving forward in life as though what was given her had no real consequences-she knew from a young age that there was 'more'. "One of the many blessings is because the people I was around didn't love me and I didn't love them. I didn't want to emulate them."
LeQuita Vance-Watkins lives in Vermont and still surrounds herself with the MORE of life, "the best of everything", the Arts.
