I grew up in a multicultural household with two teachers for parents. I have always had a passion for learning and have been an avid reader. My parents would take me to libraries and most times I would come out with books stacked so high I could barely carry them. I loved reading but slowly started realizing that no books represented me, and none represented the multicultural relationships I witnessed growing up. As a response to that, I wanted to create books that I and several other people could relate to. From this want for understanding and a better world, I also have sought out life-coaching with a group of amazing women called Divine Table 9. We do all we can to help others live the best life possible.
