The Mountains That Made Me | My First Short Doc

The Mountains That Made Me | My First Short Doc

So…I’ve been SO nervous to share this, but a friend at #mastHERclass, an event this past weekend, encouraged me to do it. So here it is!

This project is SO close to my heart. It took a lot of blood, sweat, tears and love to make it happen. It’s my baby.

The purpose of everything I do is to affirm, heal, and uplift black women and girls, empowering them to become their best selves and live their best lives! This journey, just like anything else in life, has not been without its challenges.

How Allowing Myself to Feel is Helping Me Heal

How Allowing Myself to Feel is Helping Me Heal

Whether we’ve lost a loved one, someone said the wrong thing at the wrong time, or we’re having a rough day, it’s difficult to give ourselves the time, space and energy necessary to sense, exist in the moment, to sit with what is, isn’t and will be.
