I am a young African-American professional who loves to read, engage in intellectually stimulating conversation, and is led by God. Learning is a gateway and opens doors I can never imagine every single day and grateful for what God teaches me. Some lessons are painful and some come easy; I'm just glad I'm alive to experience them. I am also a southern girl with southern charm and I've been told I'm funny too! Follow my blog means following my thoughts and I appreciate you for staying along and sharing my journey!
