23 year old Author, Entrepreneur, Speaker, and Mental Health Activist
Hey you! What's up? I want to welcome you into my world. I have been on a spiritual awakened path since I was in my teens, which doesn't feel like too long ago. It all started with depression, and hitting rock bottom. In the darkest and deepest places of my pain, I was shown a spiritual path to life. It was spirituality that is the reason why I am still alive, it led me to the choice to not end my life. The moment I decided to live, was the day I found the truest form of divine love. I started going to yoga weekly, meditating every morning and every night, getting in touch with my spirit, and seeing spiritual life coaches that were able to teach me methods and principles of living life freely and happily. I learnt then that my life purpose is to serve and give back. However, I wasn't able to do it if I still had demons hidden myself. I was dedicated to healing myself and learning these principles, which aligned me to my soulful purpose.
As a young author, I published my first book, I Am Not Your Average Teen, at the age of fifteen and ranked #1 bestseller on Amazon for teen health. I have a platform designed to inspire and empower young people; by providing guidance and direction, which has helped many teens build resilience in the face of adversity. However, there was a time, when I was a young girl... I was so afraid of the world. I was scared of my own shadow. Like, my head was facing down. My voice was silent. My shoulders rolled back and my heart sadden with a notion of insecurities, a common struggle of self- identity issues. Who am I and what is my purpose in life? I would ask myself, in the darkest of darkest times in my life. Until one day, I was fifteen, and had spiritual awakenings, and self realizations that I needed to change. This is what helped me grow into myself. But life also helped. The heartbreaks, the boy who dumped me on text, the one week relationships and everything life experiences could teach me about sorrow and happiness. The path of discovery is beautiful. I have learnt to adapt to every moment, every turn, every pull the Universe has taken me!
The journey started when I wrote my first book at 15. It was during a transitional time in my life. Words that were for healing, words that became wisdom, and words that became hope for others! I was a confused and sad teenager. It has become my mission to encourage teens with various of ways to be themselves. I like to remind you that self-love is the ultimate goal, but most importantly, if you're not living your best life, then where is the fun in that? In my twenties, the question became "what brings me joy?"
There is so many ways I would like to help you with, let's start with healing and asking ourselves, "What am I holding onto and need to let go of? What am I repressing?" Healing begins today.
I want to send you love and light, and may you find your way.
Healing starts when we dig deep within ourselves, and become vulnerable with our true self.

Not many of us know what it’s like to live with Selective Mutism, let alone what it is: it is when a child, fully capable of speaking, chooses not to. Can you imagine the thoughts going through the peers, teachers, family, and friends (if there are any) of such a child, and the treatment that she is subsequently subjugated to?
