So, who am I?
And, the FreeeeDomTOUR?
🌟 Embrace the Journey of
Self-Discovery & Growth with
I’m a crystal-wearing daughter, aunt, sister, and friend; a sage-burning niece, special educator, artivist, writer; a witness who twerks for resistance, a photographer, a fitness enthusiast and motivator, a business owner, a catalyst; a creatress, a manifestress... on a quest to reclaim the discarded bits and restore membership to the whole of me.
The FreeeedomTour is the audacity to show up as who you are. It's the journey to move in alignment with a fully-integrated mind, body, and essence.
This journey says yes to:
💙 Mental wellness
💚 Physical wellness
💛 Emotional wellness
💜 Spiritual wellness
I used to show up in the world as only fragments of myself, comfortable yet exhausted. The pieces deemed valuable by others got light and love, while I dimmed my own light. But one day, I asked myself, 'How's that working for you?' It wasn't. It led to anxiety and depression.

Now, I'm not at a place of all-knowing, but being on my way is delicious! This journey is full of fumbles, stumbles, words I won't take back, and victories. The FreeeedomTour was deciding, 'Today is the day the growth begins.'
Expect new ground, new sounds, new smells, new textures, new doors, and new people. Love every part of yourself—the scars, the bruises, every piece affirmed. Reconnect with joy, excitement, and inspiration. Live in your body again, empowered by gratitude. Retreat into self for the sake of self. Prune what doesn't serve you, laugh, breathe. Let our walk in the world be sacred. #LETSGETTHISGROWTHFAM
