I grew up in Seattle, WA. There, I was able to lay the framework for my identity as a Black girl dedicated to impacting my community through public service.
After I graduated from high school, I moved to Baton Rouge, LA where I obtained a degree in Political Science at THE Southern University and A&M College. It was important for me to attend a Historically Black College and University (HBCU), and with family in Louisiana, I wanted to pay homage and experience the other side of my roots outside of the north. Now I’m based in Southeast DC and work as a full-time staffer on Capitol Hill in service of the constituents of Washington State.
When I’m not working, I enjoy talking to my friends and family, reading, and writing content for this blog.
Maybe It’s Me was born after a series of events caused me to dive deep into self reflection and question what I considered to be my “comfortable normalcy.” I’m sharing my life experiences, hoping to inspire others or simply encourage them to reflect on their relationship with themselves and those closest to them. I’ve always had a passion for writing and find therapy and solace in lending my voice to help others.
