Thank you to the Force that rebirths me every day.
Pharoe: Thank you for your positive energy, the pleasure of collaborating with you, and allowing me to share your work. Namaste!
Shawny, Ryan, Neo: Thank you for your constant support and for not allowing me to give up, even when I feel that is the only option.
LaToya, Charlene, and Erica: The three of you have helped me grow and see my own beauty in ways I am uncovering every day. Thank you for everything you have done to make me a better person.
A special thank you to my mother, Edwina White, for starting me on my writing journey and being the first person I knew to write creatively. May all your lost journals relive in everything I ever write. Thank you to my father, Victor White, brothers Vencent and Terrence, Angelicia, Monae, and my cousin Eddie Lee.
