Dear Diary, I would like to share a poem: The Burden of Responsibility I have dreams that I hope I follow Responsibilities that keep me up at night Lives of people not so shallow and A prayer that I succeed with all of His might. Visions I long to come true Laughters I yearn to … Continue reading October 8, 2018
Dear Diary, I have been missing for way too long, but here I am...back and better than ever! I remember writing my 2018 New Year blog post and writing that I was going to stay away from drama and bullshit. Yet the year is soon coming to a close and I have fallen for the … Continue reading October 1, 2018
Dear Diary, It’s been too long! I haven’t been neglecting you, I’ve just been caught up. The last 6 months have been a LOT! and I’m finally open and ready for some new connections, experiences and enterprises. I released my book earlier in the year (yay me) and the feedback has been amazing! So yes, … Continue reading September 24, 2018

Dear Diary, There has been something that has been weighing on my mind. It's something I have noticed many people in the black community fall victim to and ashamedly I say, it is something I have also been guilty of... Working with primary and junior ages within the school system, I see and hear many … Continue reading December 28, 2017
Dear Diary, It's December. The month to relive, recollect and reflect on the past 52 weeks. A month full of optimism and goal setting. This past year, I’ve lost some people (figuratively and literally), but I’ve also gained some solid relationships; specifically the ladies of Shea Butter Diaries, and the ladies of Melanin On The … Continue reading December 27, 2017
