I Can See You Through Your Mask

I don’t believe in coincidence. In fact, I recently saw a post online that sums up my beliefs on the subject matter.

The thing is, while we may not always have the reasons as to why a given occurrence is taking place, we can account for the fact that it is taking place in existence. The moment is real, and chances are there’s some form of a lesson, intention, or purpose in the event’s manifestation. Today is Sunday, June 6, 2021. To you that might not … Continue reading I Can See You Through Your Mask

Do You See You? Book Reading

Do You See You? is my first person testimony with respect to an abusive relationship I experienced during my twenties. It was not an easy book to write, but it was an important story for me to share. There have been tears shed almost every step of the way, but they were almost necessary to see my smile again. Sharing this project with the world is bittersweet, as I am sharing a lot of pain while also releasing it at the same time. At one point, all I knew for certain was that I would have to look at myself … Continue reading Do You See You? Book Reading

Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

Today is International Women’s Day 2021, an important day for recognizing women everywhere across all socially constructed divisions and arbitrarily decided upon lines. On this day it is important that we reflect on who women are and why we recognize our gender on this day. Being a woman is increasingly understood as an identity and not necessarily a gender assignment upon birth. While yes, anatomically, if you are assigned a certain body at conception by nature then you will most likely fall into the category of being female, however you may also grow to identify as a woman with time, … Continue reading Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

Cali Sunshine & Rain

I wrote a short story that means so much to me, possibly more than anything else I have written in a while. I submitted the story as a part of The Little Black Book Challenge by Vocal and Moleskine where the winner wins a grand total of $20,000! The guidelines for the submission were to write a fiction piece that somehow includes someone coming into $20,000 and also incorporating a “little black book” into the narrative. I chose to write about something close to my heart. Please read the story, it is a heartfelt and deep tale of Cali Sushine … Continue reading Cali Sunshine & Rain
