They say it takes a village to raise a child, but I firmly believe it takes the world to raise an adult.
My journey through life have been blessed with an innumerable amount of support— family, friends and strangers alike; each one playing a role in who I am today. Naturally, I feel a sense of deep gratitude for every body who has joined me on this wild adventure called life - no one is left out of the fold. However, there are a few with whom I maintain a mutually beneficial working relationship with and would like to share their gifts with the world.
