About the Author
As a woman in my early thirties, I’ve come to realize that there are a lot of things that I have no control over, but if I can make a difference in someone’s life, then I am grateful to bring change to that person. I love all human races. Everyone needs help or advice at some point. I am that person who believes that if there’s a will, there’s a way. I love writing. It’s my hobby, my stress reliever. Anytime something goes wrong, I would write, and my mind would just be flowing with all types of ideas. I write to encourage others to beat their past, to live their present, and to plan for their future. I’ve always believed that one set of eyes were never enough to see clearly beyond the drama and through the blur.
