When it came time to do this ‘About Me’ page, I had to stop and think what I wanted to say about myself, which meant I had to answer the main question everyone would want to know; Who Am I?
Well… I’m a beautiful black woman, a child of the Most High who was born and raised in Las Vegas (yes, there’s more than casinos in Vegas). I’m a mother to one, a daughter to four, a sister to five, an aunt to six, a niece to several, a cousin of plenty, and a friend to many. I’m a published author, a lifetime student, small business owner and an active community member.
That’s who I am now, but I’ve been many people in my short amount of time on earth. I’ve been a girlfriend, a fiancé, the rejector and the rejected. I’ve been a banker, a paralegal, an Americorps volunteer, an educator, the mentor and the mentee.
Looking back on these answers, I had to ask myself more importantly, Who Will I Be? The short answer is that I will be forever be transitioning into this question. Growth will always be a part of my journey. Despite where life leads me, I will always be a writer, and a thought-provoking person. That’s why I decided to create this website, to have somewhere to store these thoughts. Writing is my passion. It allows my thoughts that are constantly racing through my mind to be recorded for later.
To check out some of my work, go to my poetry section of this website and/or order my book of poetry, Whispers of Words Spoken is order directly from me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
