A new book about the life of a teenage girl in New York City in the 1980s and 1990s has ignited a conversation about how young women today face a unique set of challenges and opportunities, as well as the ways they can work to navigate these challenges.
The book, called N’ERDO: A Girl’s Life of Color, was published by the University of Virginia’s School of Visual Arts.
It is set in the era in which N’EST PAS NOIRE was first released.
“It was an amazing book, I think it was my first experience with the word ‘alternative,'” N’Erreida said.
“It’s really about trying to navigate the realities that a lot of young women face, and the things that we’re trying to do and the struggles that we face.”
A growing number of young people in New Jersey and New York are learning the challenges of navigating these new realities and growing up without a family.
“There is a new generation of young girls who are coming out of high school, college and even early adulthood who are really starting to be influenced by the work of these artists,” said author and artist Jessica N. Johnson, who co-authored the book with her daughter, N’En.
“What I found really appealing was that these stories are so accessible.
There is so much material, so much detail, so many perspectives, so it really feels like there is something really meaningful about it.”
The book was released in March and is available at bookstores, libraries, and online.
N’ERDEIDA, now 19, was born in New Mexico and grew up in a very small, immigrant-dominated town of 4,000 in northeastern New Jersey.
“Growing up, we had a very immigrant-centric, white, working-class upbringing, and we didn’t have the kind of social capital that other kids in my family had,” she said.
“We had to go to school by ourselves and work hard.
We had no money to go on vacations.
We lived in our car and drove around, and that was about it.
We were a very low-income family.”
Her parents, a single mother and a single father, did not have much financial support, so they made do with what they had.
“When I was really young, I didn’t think about money at all, I thought about having fun, doing whatever I could to support my family,” N’Eidida said, adding that she and her family struggled financially.
“And we were really trying to live up to what we thought was what we were supposed to do.”
N’Erdeida graduated high school in high school and went on to attend the University at Albany in New Albany.
In high school she went on a scholarship to a New York University-affiliated arts college and attended classes in painting, sculpture, and painting in the school’s art gallery.
In 1991, she moved to New Jersey, where she worked as a graphic designer at the time, before going to work for a few years at the University Art Museum.
She began a career in art school in 1997, and in 1999 she completed her master’s degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
She was working in art and design as a graduate student when she came across N’ERSO, the story of a young girl who had lost her hair because of a traumatic experience in the womb.
“N’erreida was just a really unique person,” Johnson said.
“[N’EIDIDA] had this really intense interest in color, and she would have her nails painted and painted her nails and painted a little bit of hair, and then she would get it cut, and it would come back to her.”
Johnson said that as she researched N’ERA, NERDO, and NERD, she discovered a new perspective on how young girls are expected to live their lives.
“The idea of how to tell stories in this way is really important,” she explained.
“I think that really struck a chord with people, and really opened people’s eyes.
It was really powerful to see that we could really do something about this.”NDEIDA began working with her art school professor to write the book.”
She is a very, very intelligent person, and as a student she was really, really interested in the way we do things,” Johnson explained.
“She wanted to really understand what our craft was and how we could use it.
So we got to work on that project and the result was a really amazing book that I’m really proud of.”
In addition to her work at the art school, NDEIDA was also working as a freelance illustrator and illustrator-in-residence at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
She was also a regular contributor to publications like the New York Times Magazine and the Huffington Post.
