I am naturally a private person which means others will confide in me as I am a good listener. However the truth is, growing up through school and college I never knew who I really was. I hid my true self, scared others wouldn’t accept me which led me down a series of dead end streets. Studying performing arts at college taught me how to live my life as an actress and mask who I really was. I felt alone and unloved and wasn’t sure which direction to go in.


I was brought up on Christian values but didn’t really experience God for myself until I was in my early twenties. God started to peel off my layers of insecurities and the barriers I built up around me. I discovered that the person I thought I was, was just an image created to please others. Life with God has helped me find my true identity. I am accepted!
