“Small-Minded vs. Open-Minded;Which One Are You?!”

Audiobook: Let's be real, we all have our toxic traits. We can be toxic towards the people we know, love, and even to ourselves. The reality is, no one walking on this earth today is perfect.

“Looting In Our Communities.”

THE MINORITY OF PEOPLE PARTICIPATING IN DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR DOES NOT REPRESENT WHAT BLACK LIVES MATTER STANDS FOR!

The start of this semester had a rocky start of overwhelment. I became so overwhelmed that I questioned my ability to continue…
