The Woman Behind The Words
WHO I AM: I am a writer, self-love & healing advocate, and change-agent. I have been writing since I was 7 years old. I started off writing in my diary to express my innermost thoughts and emotions and then began writing poetry, raps, short stories, and personal essays inspired by my life experiences.
On my journey, I came to realize that writing had always played an integral part in my growth and healing. I view expressive writing as a spiritual practice that takes you into the depths of your being, helps to identify your inner wounds, explore your thoughts and emotions, and connect with your true self. Spirit inspires me to write. What pours out is an expression of my heart and soul on the page.
I explore a variety of issues in my written works including love, sex, trauma, God, spirituality, culture, race, identity, self-love, relationships, and healing. I write from my heart with authenticity and passion and am dedicated to using my writing and creativity as mechanisms for positive change.
𝗪𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐈 𝐃𝐎: I advocate for healing and self-love through writing, social entrepreneurship, and collaborative projects.
WHAT I BELIEVE: I believe that we each have the ability to create positive change in the world. That starts with each of us doing the work to heal our minds and hearts, becoming aware of how racism and anti-Blackness narratives have impacted our identity, relationships with ourselves and others throughout the diaspora, and the world. When we each do the work to heal on an individual level this creates a ripple effect that can lead to healing on a larger scale. We must each go through a process of healing and transformation to help elevate the collective. I believe this work is part of the path to true freedom and liberation.

I am extremely proud and excited to share my debut poetry book: Matters of The Heart. The project might have been a lengthy one, with poems spanning over 25 years of my life, but this was one story that really needed to be told.
