C-GCC Alumna Nefateria Squire-Dancey Publishes First Book

Written By Editor on 12/20/21 | 12/20/21

Columbia-Greene Community College alumna Nefateria Squire-Dancey of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., recently published her first book, Te’nasede (tenacity). Designated a “self-help” book, Te’nasede captures the author’s thoughts about “fostering self-care, unlearning, healing, uplifting, and inspiring the many lives of ‘strong’ individuals who tend to suffer in silence daily with multiple hidden hurts.”

Squire-Dancey graduated from Columbia-Greene in May 2017 with an Associate in Arts in Individual Studies. As a first-time author, she has been seeking to use her experiences to encourage her readers to find purpose and fulfillment where they might have otherwise felt lost. She has remained persistent in becoming a better version of herself each and every day and hopes to instill the same drive in others.  

Of her former student, Associate Professor of Communication Studies Maya Greene said, “Nefateria is remembered for her thoughtful and kind presence in class. Her demeanor was always calm and peaceful, and it is not surprising that she wrote a book on self-care.” 

Recently, the author donated multiple copies of her book to the C-GCC Library. To learn more about Te’nasede’s availability, e-mail or call 518.828.4181, Extension 3286.
