This week marks another birthday. I love birthdays, especially mine I have learned a great deal about myself over the last year. I have rediscovered how resilient I am. I have learned to pick myself up and dust myself off and continue on because life is too short to dwell on the past. I know that with a lot of love and support I can accomplish many things.
It is with this knowledge, I am taking huge risks both personally and professionally. I choose me. I love my work with families which fulfills one of my life’s purposes, which is partnering with parents to assist them with providing amazing beginnings for their children. I have also become more active within the albinism community which fulfills another purpose of giving back. I have received many gifts in learning to love and embrace myself as a beautiful, compassionate and caring woman of African descent with albinism. Lastly, it is my goal and purpose to share my story with the world. So it is with great joy that I give to others while creating space for me.
As some of you know I will be traveling to Dar es Salaam Tanzania in November to attend the first Pan`African Albinism conference. I am honored and so very excited I could and probably will, cry happy tears. It is my hope that you will help me make this journey possible.
I will be launching a crowdfunding campaign this week in honor of my birthday. Please give what you can. Please share the link once it is posted. Please know how much I appreciate your generosity.
