When I was in college, I would constantly get replies to emails, and even emails sent directly to me, where the person writing would confuse the upper case ‘i’ as a lower case ‘L’. So instead of emailing me back and calling me by my government name – “eye-E-sha”, I would get “leh-sha”.
It would drive me crazy, so much that my friends began calling me Lesha as a joke. The joke kept going to the point where they had nicknamed me Lesh. After that, I just embodied the idea of “If you can’t beat them, join them” and I took that on as my nickname or my ultimate fashion persona who is a little sarcastic (okay, a lot sarcastic) and likes to be cheeky and lets herself live the luxury life no matter the cost.
