It’s been tough but I have waited a long time to tell my story until the right time. On the eve of my 40th birthday, and before I begin my four decades on earth, it is my goal to finally release everything I have held inside. I will be leaving my Health Education Specialist position at Fisk University to follow my dream.


Everyone has a story, now it is time for me to tell mine! These 39 years of life have given a story like no other, and I am eager to share my story.


My book will be 39 chapters, detailing my life.  I will do 13 chapters each on the three major cities that have impacted my life including New York, Nashville and Detroit. I will speak openly and honestly on my struggle with depression, sexuality, and my search for love.  As a lifelong learner, I will write about my past loves, my friendship blessings, and my continual search for purpose of life. 

 

City highlights include
