My Daughter Was Hit By A Car

On April 21, 2021 between 5:30pm - 6pm my daughter was the victim of a hit and run on Atlantic and Rochester (Queens Side). The driver did not stay at the scene. Make and model of the car is unknown. As far as I know, there are no witnesses. But we know someone had to see something. Without going into detail, she is alive and alert. I am forever grateful. It could have been worse, but God. 

I thank God for wrapping his arms around my daughter and protecting her. I am very thankful for Roxie and Pringle who called me because he knew in his heart something happened to NyAsia. I am very thankful for the good samaritan who contacted me and stayed with my daughter until EMS arrived. I am thankful for Nettie and Yasmeen for going with her to the hospital and staying there until arrived. I am very thankful for my family, friends near and far. I am very thankful for Ty Brown and the entire BU Village. I am thankful for all the prayers, calls and texts. They are very much appreciated. Thank you to my sister from another mother Neesha for coming to the hospital (against my wishes) staying with me until she was kicked out.

I ask that you share this post with the hopes of someone stepping up and speaking out. My focus is to ensure my daughter recovers and then find the person who hit and left her in the street.

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no

Being a Bold Leader

Stop and think about the following questions.   1. What does it mean to be bold? 2. What does it mean to be a leader?  3. Would you consider yourself bold, a leader or a bold leader?  There are several definitions and interpretations of what it means to be bold and to be a leader. My interpretation of being bold is not being afraid to take risks or make decisions (that lead to a positive result). I also think being bold is displaying confidence and courage as someone works to fulfill their purpose in the world. My interpretation of a leader is someone who has good organization skills which is required when working in a team setting or organization. I also think leaders stand behind their teams and works diligently to bring out the best in everyone. My interpretation of a bold leader is a combination of bold and leaders previously stated above. In addition, a bold leader is someone who has a clear vision, purpose, and a plan of action. It is someone who can get tho

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College , I was introduced to the worlds renowned author  Ms. Iyanla Vanzant . My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith. Photo Credit: RaisingBrownGirls While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?" My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past,
