Hello beautiful people! I would like to introduce to you all who I am. I am a proud Black Deaf advocate, a single mother, a college student, and a self-taught hairstylist. I am pursuing my education at J. Sargeant Reynolds for an early childhood education and Deaf studies degree. I loveeeee nature! I love spending quality time with my two young children. I enjoy socializing with the Deaf community. My biggest goal is to set up an inclusive daycare in Richmond for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deafblind children.
