Past Year of Reflection

I turn 23 years old tomorrow, and I was never much one to celebrate my own birthday until recent years when I was detoxing from negativity. It’s honestly amazing when you are positive what good comes out from it. Surround yourself with people who love, support & encourage you, and they let you, BE YOU!  While I still continue to grow as a person I want to reflect on my last year as a 22-year-old because it was one of my best years. I really understood who I am as a person and I love being able to share that with the world and express myself through my blogging, writing, social media, & modeling. This has been a really great year for me, and I am excited to see what my 23rd lap around the sun brings me.
