I wrote my story to encourage anyone who has ever been bullied, to know that God specifically allowed you to go through that experience, to make you the strong individual you are today. Just remember, you are an overcomer, more than a conqueror and you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! Philippians 4:13

Being a victim of bullying made me a caring teacher

I like to say that I come from “humble beginnings,” where I grew up in the New York City housing projects and attended the New York City public school system. I was happy that I came from a “closely-knit” Christian family, where we always attended church and went everywhere together as a family. I was brought up in the Baptist church where I was taught to love God and His people.
