They will try to stop you in various ways – guilt is the main way. Know this, it is their own fear of what will change once you do succeed. Or as some people may say, “I’m just looking out for your best interest because I love and care about you.” Parents are the main ones who are guilty of doing this. They tell their children to have a backup plan in place just in case that “dream of yours doesn’t work out.” (Denzel Washington) Denzel Washington, award winning actor and […]

Along with these traumatic incidences, even more hardship occurred, like raising three children as a single parent while I […]

I guess I thought that way because since I can remember I’ve been a writer. As a girl I was an avid reader and writing essays came natural to me. Stories took me away from the crazy, sometimes unpredictable life I had as a black girl being raised by my African-American mother and white stepfather, who was a member of the Italian Mafia. Not your typical household, for sure.
