I created a style of music, where my body was the instrument and my heart the conductor. During the COVID-19 shutdown, isolation championed mother earth and I found myself in a world where fear dominated: our voices unheard, our identities hidden. I remember on this day lowering my head onto my knees as the melody of sadness, loss, and grief fell with every tear. We've lost so much. The pulse within my heart soothed my body from its brokenness. I used the sound of my soul to heal and understand my truth. I was a broken instrument but now the conductor with an amazing song to share.
Confidence. Opportunities. Love. Optimism. Resilience. Strength.
