Who I Am
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. In recent years, I have worked hard to create the life of my dreams. I am blessed to have wonderful relationships, and support from my parents, siblings, extended family, and a large network of friends. I have a stable, fulfilling career as an executive. I am blessed that my job is flexible and I have family nearby who can’t wait to babysit.
My parents raised me and my siblings with unconditional love and support. I always felt that there was nothing that I could do that would change how they felt about me. Even when I made mistakes during those hard teenage years, I always had guidance, love, and encouragement.
My parents divorced when I was 12 years old, but maintained a good relationship, which allowed me the opportunity to grow-up feeling connected and secure. I have been blessed to have wonderful step-parents who have also loved and cared for me.
It’s been two years since I did my “big chop” where I stopped putting a relaxer in my hair. I normally wear my hair in braids since it’s so convenient and I love braid styles. This week I tried a new protein hair treatment. I love how versatile black hair is. I hope to teach a child to love every part of who they are one day.
As I get older I really understand that value in not having as many friends but having really genuine and loving friends. I saw this and it made me feel so thankful for the friends who are in my life.
