I'll always shine with happiness.

Listen to my Making It Through the Struggle Rap Playlist on Spotify Now

I'm a passionate person with a lot of energy and a lot of happiness. The greatest part about me is where I come from and that is a whole bunch of love. I've been loved from head to toe since I was born and when you have that it makes you the luckiest person in the world. With so much of it in my life, it's my desire to share it all the time. Until I was older I also learned the value of health. The importance of moving and being active and preventing things from happening instead of fixing them once they do. Fitness entered my life and now I don't know what I'd do without it. I work for the greatest fitness app around, Sworkit. My team is just 6 people and we have 25 million downloads. I live in the city and travel frequently. I listen to music almost more than I sleep. I love my parents with every inch of my sole. They've taught me to never judge a single sole. To be careful and protect myself but to accept others for who they are. Everyone is carrying around pain and stress and heartbreak so why not give someone the opportunity to feel extraordinary. 

For hobbies when I am not working hard to build the greatest fitness app with my team, I am an avid playlist curator, freelance web designer, belly dancer, chef, bag toss champion and gym nut. I love listening to the ocean, volunteering, and participating in anything competitive. I love reading and writing hand written letters to loved ones. I am fascinated by the mind and traditional medicine. I believe a mindset can cure anything.

"I lost my dad to drug addiction but he was my best friend until the last day. I understand the pain you're feeling- on both sides.

 

I felt my dads pain- especially those days he told me he wanted to die so bad and begged me for forgiveness. And I also feel your pain to see someone you love struggle with the disease and feeling out of control of emotions.

 

My dad and I were lucky. We learned to have a healthy relationship. When my dad first relapsed I was angry and disappointed. Some days I took the blame and some days I'd think my dad was selfish.

 

Eventually, I loved my dad for his disease and could treat a relapse like a bad day. I hope I can help others do the same. Everyone deserves love and support and with this I want #RisingHope"
