Not too long ago I decided to take control of my life. Instead of laying down in bed feeling like the world was just happening around me, I decided to be present in the lives of my friends and family. That one decision made all the difference. Opening up to people allowed me the opportunity to make valuable connections. This all started when I went through a break up with my on again/off again boyfriend of two and a half years, and it was something about this last break up that allowed me to realize that something needed to change. The feeling of loss is so powerful, and I'm actually surprised that I was able to turn so much emotion and negativity into something positive. I'm young, and I won't be young forever. I need to make these years count, so it starts now.

I am young, and still trying to figure this adult thing out. I come from a West Indian household, and my life has been a series of unexpected events, like most.
