It doesn’t matter how the journey went, what’s important is the destination.there’s still a lot more to do and achieve, but i’ve come this far and i’m not willing to give up. i will continue to fight untill i reach it. none of this would have been possible if it weren't for you @ilienko_todorof , thank you so much. and thanks to all the people who believe in me and continue to support me. love you all.

If you follow on my snapchat (justiceeew) you know i’ve challenged myself to attempt to do almost everything myself. in the past i’ve spent a lot of coins having other stylist do my hair....no ma’am 🙅🏾♀️ not any more.... a few weeks back i taught myself how to make a closure wig (mind you quality wigs can range from $250 to over $1000) && it came out pretty good for a first timer. then while deciding my next style i said i want twist..... mind you they can run between $150-$300....i told myself i could pay someone but why pay someone for something i can teach and learn how to do myself.... so i got my tail on youtube and taught myself! (youtube is my bestie right now) i honestly was so intimidated by doing my own twists. i lowkey was doubting that i could do it... ha but after almost 2 days of trying to figure it out/ complete the style, i achieved my goal!!!! thank you youtube gawds! 🙌🏾ya helped ya girl get her life!! babyyy if i can do it you can do it. y’all save y’all coins! for me $150-$300 isn’t worth it anymore when the style(braids) last you at the longest 3/4months. i spent $10 on hair used old hair that was saved from a previous stylist and voila! #doityourself2018challenge#proudofmyself#gofollowmysnap #andistillgotmy$300 #nextupislearninghowtosew 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
It’s thursday night, i’m at tim hortons working on typing my life story in 5 pages! i thought it would be easy but it’s hard. (even though i talk about my story everyday.) looking back on how much i’ve been through the past 24 years of life like oh my! i’ve conquered a lot of things especially with dialysis. the past year has been a really rough ride because of all these dialysis line change and infections but i’m glad i haven’t given up yet. this is why i love sharing my struggles and also what challenges life has given to me because it shows that no matter what happens that you’ve become stronger. i’ve learn to always advocated for yourself because no one knows your body expect yourself and if you don’t speak up the problem won’t be fixed. i’ve gotten everyone’s support and respect at the dialysis/kidney unit. they all know that when i came to the dialysis unit that i would be a handful and i was for the first 9 months. after testing the waters out i can finally say that they are family now. they are one of the reasons why i can get through this because they understand what i am going through. i’m glad i’ve open up about living with kidney disease and posting it up social media because i wouldn’t have met all these new people around the world in the same situation as me. i am excited on what this year is going to be like. i know it’s going to be a better one then last year i hope. well got to get back on typing ✌🏽#dialysisprincess#dialysislife#ckd#proudofmyself#workinghard#awarenesscreateschange#love#family#getloudforkidneys#meetingnewpeople#support#family#kidneywarriors#kidneylife#onebighappyfamily#lifestory#reminderformyself#doingawesome#dontstop#wontstop#timhortons
