I WORK FOR WOMEN OF COLOR TO CREATE A MOVEMENT OF TOTAL SELF LOVE AND LIBERATION.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt a connection to something bigger than me. As a child I was rebellious, outspoken and a natural rule breaker. As the only person of color in a very toxic home, I was confused about my role in life – and that made me angry. I wanted someone to save me. And I knew I was meant for so much more than what was in front of me.
So I searched. Searched for answers. Tapped into my creative talents of acting, writing and directing and traveled the world.
It was during my time at Florida State University that I first discovered the seeds for self love through my opportunities to travel. I was lucky enough to live with a host family in Costa Rica, travel throughout Europe, live in Germany, and train at a theater intensive in London, England. As I met people from all walks of life I began to expand my consciousness. And I began exploring meditation (which scared me because it meant going into my own head).
