Scars Are Tattoos with Better Stories

My life began with scars. My house burned to the ground when I was 3 years old, with me in it. My life is a gift.

When I began school, I learned that people could be cruel. At 13, when I began high school, I realized I was enough and began the healing of my spirit.

I found my power when I gave birth to my second child at home and was called to become a midwife. I have always fought for and stood with the oppressed. Midwifery has sustained me and completed my healing. I am grateful every day for my life.
