The Basics

Woman. Wife. Bonus Mom. Daughter. Sister. Aunt. Friend.

Leader. Self Love Advocate. Student. Survivor. Writer. Poet. Artist. Curly Girl. Dancer. Singer. Traveler. Music Lover. Amateur Chef. Fitness Endorphin Lover. 

I have so many titles and wear so many hats, we all do. Those titles and hats say so much about us without really giving a lot away. 

I am half American Indian (Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina) and half first generation Italian America. I was born and raised in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. At the age of 18 I moved to North Carolina to attend the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I currently live and work in the DMV area. (DMV = DC, Maryland & Virginia). 

I have always been a writer but never thought my work was good enough to share. I still have floppy disks filled with poetry and stories I started writing at age of eleven. 

I have spent what feels like my whole life jumping from diet to diet. Only to finally learn that I needed to first love my whole self before any other lifestyle change would stick. 

I am newlywed. I married my best friend of ten + years on September 29, 2018. 

I could keep going… but then again that is why I decided to finally start this blog. 

I look forward to learning, growing and slaying with you! 

Thank you for your presence.
