Trainer, Youth Facilitator/Speaker
“I speak about the struggles of growing up in a poverty stricken (priority) neighborhood, how incidents of racism led me to plant a seed of self-hate which over the years grew into low self-esteem and anger issues. Not having the proper support and dealing with constant anxiety lead me to getting in trouble with the law, substance abuse problems and ultimately homelessness. The message I share with youth is about my journey with planting new seeds of self-compassion, love. Looking back at these difficult moments helped me to build strength in character, independence and resilience, and most Importantly understanding the importance of self-love.”
