Neesha Arter is a journalist and author based in New York City. Arter's work has appeared in the New York Times, The Daily Beast, the New York Observer, New York Magazine, Interview, Teen Vogue and others. In her debut memoir, Neesha Arter shares the year of her life that followed a harrowing crime. When she was fourteen years old, she was sexually assaulted by people she had no reason to mistrust. She tried, subsequently, to reconcile feelings of guilt and shame by searching for a means of control. In a whirlwind of legal proceedings, family conflicts, and loss of identity, Arter succumbed to anorexia as the only way to find her childhood self in an unraveling world. Ten years later, she is able to look back with healing insight about the importance of speaking uncomfortable truths. Neesha's memoir, CONTROLLED, is coming out August 11.
