Follow My Health Journey
I was born and raised in New York and my family is originally from Trinidad. I grew up on Long Island, where I still live with my husband and two daughters. I’ve always envisioned becoming a published author one day.
My life changed drastically in 2015, propelling me to reevaluate how I was living and how my time was being invested.
“Parkinson’s,” the doctor said. “No way!” was my response. It doesn’t run in my family. I’m too young. I always felt fine and I had my whole life ahead of me.
In the end, there was no denying it. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at age 34. This has certainly been a life changer and has brought so many unexpected challenges. I look at my two daughters and decide the fight in me would always overcome the fright. I have made up my mind that Parkinson’s is not who I am, or what will become of my legacy.
I am using every ounce of my time to learn, grow and find opportunities to keep achieving. Writing has always been a passion that I put on the backburner because of life. Life will never stop, so why should I.
Writing is my therapeutic passion. I am so grateful to create, and bring to life my thoughts, imagination and beliefs. Writing has become my will to heal in all aspects. My positive mindset and determination to live a full life, will shine through my books. I believe teaching children of all ages, the values of gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, love and joy, is integral to their growth and development.
