“I can now vent and release everything I have buried within myself for all these years. Girl Be Heard has given me the power to be free and happy.”

Girl Be Heard gives me the strength to overcome adversity and inspire other girls with my story. I was born and raised in Brooklyn. Living in the hood after being kicked out of our suburban home, I was forced to grow up faster than others. School was my only escape and there I found my love for writing. Surrounded by a lot of negativity, writing, acting, and dancing became my outlet. I bottled up a lot of the things I saw and experienced as a child because no one would listen. As a child, my greatest passion in life was helping others. Girl Be Heard has inspired me to inspire other girls with my story. I can now vent and release everything I have buried within myself for all these years. Girl Be Heard has given me the power to be free and happy.
