Today we’d like to introduce you to Nikita E. Thomas.
Nikita, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Much like me, my story starts off raw and dramatic. I secretly began in the womb of my mother in Newark, New Jersey headed to an abortion clinic because she had no desire to have children. She crept off early in the morning, while everyone was asleep. My aunt, although still sleeping, spoke saying, “if you abort this child, destruction will come upon you!”
Keep in mind, my aunt never knew my mom was pregnant. No one did. Out of fear for her own life, my mother spared mine. She named me, Nikita-Elyse, which we now know means unconquerable and victorious.
Knowing I was chosen gave me an incredible sense of purpose early on. Whether I made perfect decisions or not, I have always been aware of the power that my actions and words had. I also knew the importance of managing my abundant emotions. I firmly believe it is one of my superpowers.
One thing is clear to me, God placed me on this earth to inspire and love unconditionally. With that comes tons of challenges, disappointments, and flat out heartbreaks. One of my first major heartbreaks came from my father.
But, it was his many disappointments that taught me a life lesson that I teach around the world today.
