Sometimes I pinch myself wondering if this is real . . .
It’s real y’all!
I released my very first book, ‘I AM Thriving’ a few weeks ago.
I AM officially the author of I AM Thriving — a guided affirmation journal.
It was a long time coming. There were fleeting moments where I thought that it wasn’t going to happen, maybe I was in over my head and who’d want to read this book anyway.
THRIVING meant accepting an overwhelming amount of love + support for this book.
The was no stopping the release!
I released this book on what would have been my mother’s 65th birthday (10 years after her transition).
She told me to be strong + courageous. I heard her.
Writing this book is a testament to so many things that she taught me. Writing this book is proof that I AM Thriving despite the odds against me.
She worked too hard for me to quit.
I wrote this book in memory of my mother’s legacy.
My book release was at the first annual Paterson Poetry Festival in Paterson, NJ. It was incredible.
Mayor Andre Sayeghnj purchased a copy of my book. It made my the day even more special.

I did a lot of the work for this book in silence. It was hard work. but I’m glad that I didn’t quit on my dream.
Trust me when I tell you that I was moments away from quitting on my book several times. Then I remembered, I AM Thriving wasn’t just for me.
Destiny was so much greater than my temporary hiccups and emotions. The feedback on my book has been incredible. I’m glad that I didn’t give in to those emotions. There’s been a tremendous amount of friends and family that supported me along this journey. I am so grateful.
