“We wear many masks to cover the flaws or imperfections we have, but there is always a mask that we still hide behind. There is always another face that we hide behind so others don’t see it. Just know that it is okay to love all of you — including the imperfections we try to hide from. This (book) is to inspire you to embrace the real you and to be strong through all things with poetry.”

“My divine message is we have to not let fear be barriers of your reason not move forward in purpose of life.

We must be willing to move into the unknown and get uncomfortable to be successful.”
