Making My Way Back Home
After my parent’s divorce, I became depressed and anxious.
I also struggled at that time with horrible health because of my Cystic Fibrosis.
After suffering in silence for years, I needed an outlet. I needed to find a way to release my depression and anxiety.
When I was in college, I found out that I could do that through spoken word poetry.
Besides my chronic illness, I was going through a hard time in my life, because my father had passed away, and I was going through the biggest heartbreak of my life at the time.
When I finally got the courage to perform a poem in front of a live audience, here in Orlando, everything changed.
Writing felt like home.
Continuing to follow that passion, I taught myself how to use social media to spread my spoken word poetry. On Facebook alone, my poems have grossed over a million views and have spread to even more people.
People began to reach out to me telling me how my poems helped them because of my vulnerability.
I felt great that I was helping people, but inside I was still suffering.
One thing led to antoher and I started to see a life coach, which transformed me so much, I wanted to do that for other people.
I became an ACC Certified Life Coach. And that journey, finally led me home.
