Heeyyyyy everybody! So this is my first blog post on my new site and to say that I am excited is an understatement!
I figured before I get into any real topics I should let you guys know a little bit more about me first. If you've read my "About" section then you already know that I am a wife and mommy of two little boys. Although I consider my roles as a wife and mother as the two most important ones in my life, I am a woman that likes to wear many hats. Last year I turned the big 3-0 and decided that I would finally pursue all of my dreams and aspirations wholeheartedly, one of them being pushing myself to build a brand that I can be proud of. That is one of the main reasons that I created this website and I am hoping that each and every person that views this site can leave feeling empowered to go out there and chase their dreams as well!
Two of my passions are writing and making videos, and being the free spirited person that I am, I am like to cover any and everything in my blog posts and videos lol, so don't be surprised if you see a post one day on building self esteem followed by a video of me and my son doing remixes to our favorite hip hop songs (if you are friends with me on Facebook then you know how my baby aka "Tres' Ivy gets down lol)...I can be deep...but I can also be silly. It took me a while to become comfortable with all of the little quirks and qualities that make me who I am, but now that I am, I am ready to share my story with the world!
Outside of my professional and family life, my other passion is to help people, particularly women and young girls. That is why I am actively involved in a mentoring program for young girls. I am also the founder of The LEAH Project Inc., a nonprofit devoted to empowering girls and women and helping them to realize their God given purpose in life despite any type of setbacks that they may have faced. The LEAH Project Inc. is based off of the scripture Isaiah 61:3, and the belief that God will give us beauty for our ashes.
Well, that's all for now!!! Be sure to check back often for new blog posts.
