A small-town girl who grew into a big-city woman. I’m unapologetically passionate, and (for better or worse) always on a journey to be smarter, better, and more fly.
I’ve been addicted to writing ever since I learned how to scrawl my name in crayon back in the day. It’s been the easiest way for me to express myself throughout my life, but this blog is the first time I’ve been so open with my thoughts.
About ’83 To Infinity…
Representing life’s various journeys, and the fact that it’s never too late to learn something new, do something new, or be someone new.
’83 To Infinity is a place to get the thoughts that swim around in my mind daily out into the open. My initial focus was to provide an Afro-Canadian hub for discussions around Natural hair. In my hair escapades, I found that 99% of the available only resources were based in the US – there is virtually no comparable Afro-Canadian voice on the Natural hair scene, and I hope to provide a glimpse into this topic from my perspective. Looking into my other passions, you’ll get my take on relationships, health & wellness, career, art, and other life and culture topics that make me laugh, think, and grow.
Life is a journey where we can all be educated, entertained, and inspired by one another, so ’83 To Infinity is my small contribution to that.
