“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ~Audre Lorde

Finding beauty in the simplest things and always searching for that silver lining in every dark cloud has been two of my life guides. I have definitely had my share of disappointments, loss and hurt but I survived.  It has never rang truer when people say you don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. As an author and HIV advocate, I have found tranquility in writing and uplifting others. This genuine connection with words has allowed me to be candid, open, and unashamed about life and the choices I've made. What I've learned is this openness has fostered bonds with women near and far who gain inspiration from my life's journey. My words are more powerful than I could have ever imagined, thus the birth of Dare to Be- a line of creative products that seek to inspire and bolster confidence in women and girls around the world. Feel it, believe it, and look awesome wearing it!!
