Who is Kesha?

Names. They tell the story of our existence without ever uttering a word. You are given one before you can say or spell it. They give us pride. They are passed down to us. My husband is the third. You may be named for someone close to you, most often your parents. Our names are personal. We wear them around our necks, get tattoos of lovers or lost ones. We are named for our heroes - an aspiration for our children. Your last name shows generations of those who were able to survive and continue their lineage.

Your name is your introduction to the world.
