I grew up in the Detroit area along with my parents, younger sister, older brother and older sister. We had our difficult moments and good times as well. I was hurt quite a bit going through life and as time went on, I let it turn me into a more depressed, sad, and confused younger adult. I turned to alcohol at a young age and this of course did not help matters. It eventually brought out my darker side and put me into a tail spin of negative, hurtful acts that turned my world from just getting by into a severe depressed state that spiraled out of control for the better part of twenty years. Thankfully, times have changed and I had the strength to overcome these dark emotions that I let over take me. The beginning of my healing journey started with me helping children with hard lives themselves. Working with these souls opened my eyes, heart and soul to what I have come to know now is a life worth living. I am currently an educator who works with special needs children in Central New York. I am blessed every day even when I lose sight of the path I am on. I have beautiful, caring and compassionate souls in my life, which I thank the heavens above to have as friends, companions and as soul mates.
