We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It definitely wasn’t a smooth road. I dealt with being blackballed, child abuse, rape as a minor, domestic violence, and attempted suicide. But God brought me through it all.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I have a lot of things in store. But it’s best to always move in silence. But I’ll be more than happy to drop back through and give updates. In the meanwhile, everyone can follow my pages to stay updated.
