I am a woman of many faces who wears many hats. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend, a coworker and a lover of peace and equality for all. I have had many many dark days since I have been on this planet and I have managed to channel the negative energy into positive energy. Each day meets me with a new challenge that I rise to or because I am human, I fall prey to. It's a struggle most days because I am ever reminded that I have character defects that can sometimes bring me to my boiling point. A boiling point that many years ago would have led me to self injure.
I decided to write about my experiences with self injury and interviewed other people of color who have self injured. I was surprised at the eagerness that they displayed when I asked if they were interested in being featured in my book. I am forever grateful to them all for their courage and for the trust they had in me as a stranger, and also the trust they had in me as a member of the "cutting club". I hope you enjoy my book!!!
