I remember being told that people like me, with attitudes like mine don’t make it out of the “hood”. I remember being told that a lady shouldn’t cover herself in skull tattoos. I remember being told that I must maintain a professional look at all times to make it in this world 🌎. I NEVER LISTEN TO THOSE PEOPLE.
I also remember being told to be myself. To follow my heart. That where I grow up, does not set my future. Be proud of where I grow up, tell my story, my past is part of this amazing journey and story.
I come from a family of fighters. Of people that push through walls and road blocks. That never stop pushing for our future. That take chances. That has faith.
I’m grateful and blessed that I took the second advice and followed in my family’s spirit. I do have a past and it’s one that I’m not shy of. I love my story because it lead me to here. A woman confident in her own skin. CEO of her own business, Fitness coach, Wife, Mom, Sibling, and Friend to so many amazing people.
So follow your HEART, your PASSION. Be YOU and don’t ever worry about what others may say or think!!
