About the Author

Author Name : DeLisha Sylvester

     DeLisha Sylvester studied English at University of Maryland, University College. After a long career in bookkeeping and having a child, she realized that she needed more and created DS Bookkeeping and Consulting in 2012, building from many years of experience as a professional bookkeeper. In August of 2012, after experiencing several trials through entrepreneurship and being inspired by the journey of other women that she met, Sylvester followed a vision from God to create a publication that showcases and helps elevate women. She looked to form an informational platform to promote upstart businesses owned by women across the US. She was inspired by her mantra, "Be Determined, Be Inspired, Be Blessed!" Women's Elevation Magazine hopes to put that mantra to the test by promoting, inspiring, informing, and elevating the minds of the women who read it. Regarding the magazine, Sylvester has said, "WE Magazine has helped bring my life full circle. Every woman I get to talk to, connect with, share my story with and listen to theirs makes me feel more fulfilled. Whenever I speak to a woman about being a part of the magazine, I let them know that the magazine is for them, and that is my truth. I am here to bring their stories to the forefront...to write about the stories untold, to bring their struggles, laughter, and successes to the light in order to share them with like-minded women embarking on similar journeys."

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of


An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
