I came from a very disempowered and shut-down place around my sexuality and femininity. Tom-Boy was what they called me. Over time, I felt more like I was a soul floating unattached to my body. I looked in the mirror and hated who was staring back at me, I stunted my personal growth and couldn’t fully understand or grasp what it meant to be a woman with a creative, sexual, sensual body. So I deny it. With my traumatic background I never felt like I belong, I became, what one would call, a statistically pregnant teen. I thought at the time, that the love I was lacking in my own life, that I would be able to create that missing emotion by starting my own family. I would be able to provide love to a child. I grew up in a very hateful, judgmental racist environment. I am biracial, people didn’t want me to be part of there group. I learned to perform for others instead of being seen as I am. My defense was to befriend and camouflage myself before others could point fingers at me. Over the years, I have learned to dance with the creation of life, found my melody, and more importantly, I rebirth me.
